Under the knife!... Again!
November 29, 2014
So… I’ve been a bit missing-in-action on social media for these past few weeks, but for good reason. I went under the knife!... Again!

That started me off on the biggest challenge I’ve ever faced: to recover from hip surgery in time to represent my country internationally in two sports – rugby and bobsledding – within the year following my surgery, with the ultimate goals to represent Canada at the Rugby Sevens World Cup in Moscow in June 2013, and to compete at the Winter Olympics in Sochi in February 2014.

As a university student in a work-placement program more than a decade ago, she spent her days helping people overcome obstacles.

Moyse remembers, in particular, a woman who’d lost the ability to move her fingers.
