In 1925, artist and innovator Frida Kahlo was involved in a serious accident; a bus she was riding on collided with a trolley, causing her devastating injuries.

An iron handrail gutted her abdomen and uterus, destroying her chance to have children. She also suffered:

  • a broken collarbone
  • a dislocated shoulder
  • a broken spinal column

These are just some of her injuries.

It only took mere minutes to cause the pain, but it lasted a lifetime.

” At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.
- Frida Kahlo
