Grass Valley resident Rosanna Radding doesn’t consider herself disabled. After a stroke in her 40s left her unable to use her left arm and hand, she learned to consider herself “re-abled,” a word she feels reflects more positively on her process of adapting to one-handed life.  It wasn’t easy at first. “You can get really hungry learning how to open a jar with one hand,” she laughs, but after a lot of practice Radding is now proud to say she can do everything two-handed people can do. 

Rosanna RaddingRadding is the founder of One Hand Can, a website that offers support for those facing similar challenges. Her specialty is cooking tutorials, and she is currently in the process of developing a specially designed cutting board for one-handed cooks. Radding wants to prove that re-abled people can do anything they set their mind to with a little practice and determination. She spends most of her days giving one-handed cooking demonstrations, but also continues to paint and do all the things she loved to do before her stroke. “I’ve always been the sort of person who, if somebody tells me I can’t do something, I go out and do it,” Radding insists. Considering all she’s accomplished so far, we don’t doubt it.
