Push Girls! Just Roll With It! @pushgirls

Recently, Lisa at Drugstore Divas told me about this group of amazing women known as the “Push Girls.” Push Girls is a show about women who live against stereotype and by proving daily that they are awesome just as they are. They also prove that there is life after tragedy and that it is possible to persevere in the face of insurmountable odds.

Three of these women were injured in car accidents and one of the women was paralyzed due to a blood clot. They were normal women living everyday lives as students, swimmers, dancers and models until tragedy stepped in and forever changed their lives.

Push Girls is a reality show that chronicles the day to day lives of these women. This show is not a glorified exploitation {as is the case in most reality type programming} of people living with paralysis. It does not focus on wheelchairs, wheelchair vans, or any other equipment that might aid a person with a disability. Instead, this program claims to focus on the everyday lives of these women – their relationships, their heartbreaks, their return to their former professions and their searches for new meaning.

Have any of you seen this show yet?

You can watch this show Mondays at 10pm on Sundance. *UPDATE* Apparently Sundance is one of the other channels Dish Network so infamously dropped. I guess I won’t get to watch this show after all. Thanks, Dish. However, Sundance’s website does plead for customers to call 855-5-Keep-On to help get Sundance restored to Dish subscribers. I am not sure if this will work, but give it a try if you like.

    I have a friend in a wheelchair. There was a recent fundraiser to get her a new one. The support for her was great. I think we need to be reminded that people persevere. Thanks for sharing.

    • I am glad that people came together to help. Everyday we are reminded of all the jerks in the world. However, there are some really cool people in the world, too.
