Life and love after loss ~ an inspiring conversation with Sam and Cameron Bloom
A catastrophic accident in 2013 rendered Sam Bloom paralysed from the chest down, and the lives of the Bloom family were forever transformed. With the loss of her old life came a consuming depression, which Sam bravely countered as she embarked on a momentous journey of relearning who she was and her place in the world.
The immense love and support from her family was amplified by the arrival of a little injured magpie chick, the blooms named Penguin. Penguin and Sam formed an inextricable bond through their mutual limitations and yearning for the freedom of mobility - Sam to walk and Penguin to fly.
Sam’s husband Cameron, captured their remarkable journey through thousands of stunning images that formed the basis for the international bestselling book Penguin Bloom, co-authored by Bradley Trevor Greive.
Cameron Bloom, Bradley Trevor Greive and ABC Books are proud to donate a percentage of royalties from the sale of each copy of Penguin Bloom to support SpinalCure Australia. Every day another Australian is paralysed by a spinal cord injury.
