Cor talks passionately and inspiringly from personal experience on what it takes to overcome adversity and accomplish whatever goals you set.
In June 2013 the founder of the Finding Your Feet charity lost both her hands and legs, below the knee when surgeons were forced to amputate after she became seriously ill with acute pneumonia and septicaemia.
In 2017, she also had the majority of one lung removed after suffering from an infection.
But the former super-fit businesswoman vowed never to be considered ‘disabled’ and has since dedicated her life to inspiring others.
Through Finding Your Feet, she and her team support families affected by amputation or limb difference, running more than 50 clubs a month across Scotland and driving various support and fundraising initiatives.
In October 2018 she became the first female quadruple amputee in the world to reach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain at 5,895m.
Along the way, she has helped in raising more than £500,000 for her charity.
But more than that, she has helped raise the spirits and dreams of amputees and won the admiration of many with her inspiring endeavours.
On 9 January 2019, Cor became the first Scottish double hand transplant recipient following years of being unable to find a donor match. The donor and the family of the donor changed many lives that day, and made it possible for a Mum to hold her son's hand again.
If you look at what you have in life, you'll always have more. If you look at what you don't have in life, you'll never have enough
