A series of miracles saved Emma Benoit’s life, but the self-inflicted gunshot shot wound resulted in a spinal cord injury that left her paralyzed. Although extremely tragic, the incident propelled her on a mission to use her painful experience and miraculous recovery to help others find hope and live.

"My Ascension" is a film that was created to inspire and educate audiences, while providing a spark to help individuals and communities save lives by enhancing suicide prevention efforts.

The screening will be followed by an important dialogue related to preventing youth suicides in Blair County.

Parking is available across the street from the Devorris Center. Amtran buses will be running until 8pm to bring students back to campus.
