Man's face

“Many times I have questioned whether it was worth it to go through the pain of all the procedures, of the constant memories, the flash backs and the uncertainty of whether I would get back to the person I was before the incident. I feel like I’ve lost 10 years. Then I think of the day I was present at my first family forum. At dinner that first night there is a ceremony of remembrance, where the family members of individuals affected by workplace injuries, occupational illness and fatalities honour the memory of their loved ones and the event that changed their lives forever. During that ceremony I realized that my family wasn’t on its own. I wasn’t on my own. Other people were feeling the things we were feeling, they were going through similar situations and dealing with the same situations we were.”

-Nevin Di Julio was injured by a spill of burning hot oil at a potato processing plant
