About Nancy Xia

Having sustained a T12 incomplete SCI as the result of a suicide attempt at the age of 18, Nancy Xia, now 31, says she loves her life. She works for Spinal Cord Injury Ontario as a resource and education assistant serving newly injured people in a rehab hospital. The jacket blurb on her memoir — Into the Mind of a Suicide (available from amazon.com) — is a reminder of her mission: “I feel like I have an obligation to speak for others who were lost forever to suicide.” She lives in Toronto.
