I met Lotte and her family in 2011, while working for a television program called “Lipdub”.
At the age 18, Lotte had a terrible car accident and she is paralyzed ever since. She can communicate clicking a computer mouse, but her biggest dream is to speak again.
Lotte’s story is very captivating. Her family refuses to put her in a care center and sacrifices lots of time and energy in helping her recover. It is amazing how positive they are. The smallest progress Lotte makes is a major victory fort hem.
In Januari 2013 they told me they had started a crowdfunding campaign to save 150 000 euro for a treatment in the USA. This oxygen- and stamcel treatment could help her speak again. I shot this small portrait of Lotte´s daily life to help.I hope it convinces people to donate a little bit of money towards her cause.
