Every1in Wellness & Abilities Fair Presented by Hope Instilled Brings Wellness and Hope to Milwaukee and Beyond September 30th, 2023

Jory Pradjinski, founder of Hope Instilled and creator of Every1In Wellness & Abilities Fair, shares his journey creating this event and why it is unlike anything else out there.

He demonstrates that the way we approach life is what really matters, despite the fact that he has been in constant pain for more than half of his life and has experienced things no one else should ever have to go through.

Pradjinski suffered from chronic pain that steadily worsened over the years following his injuries, which also resulted in new restrictions placed on his capabilities. Not only did he suffer from multiple failed back surgeries, but he also was in a horrific auto accident which left him with a severe concussion, bruised skull and cervical disk problems.

“We either choose to remain bitter or choose to get better. It is a decision that will affect the rest of your life.”

Beginning in the year 2000, he experienced a period of around 18 months of suicide ideation. After he overcame that obstacle, things continued to worsen. He had been taught to have hope from an early age, and it was this optimism that carried him through.

Pradjinski says, “We either choose to remain bitter or choose to get better. It is a decision that will affect the rest of your life.”

“There are things that we can do to improve the quality of our life,” he adds. “The ability to face each new day with increased resilience is frequently the first step toward improving our quality of life, along with discovering novel approaches to the treatment of chronic pain. During times of difficulty, it is also important to find people who will listen to you and support you.” 

Hope Instilled Brings Hope to All Who Struggle with Their Health

Jory created Hope Instilled Inc. a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization on April 19, 2016.

His goal in creating the website was to provide a central location where people can go to learn and explore alternative treatment options. People can discover what might work for them to improve their quality of life and alleviate pain and inflammation.

Hope Instilled now features profiles of more than 30 different alternative treatments. Chiropractic care, Reiki, Craniosacral Therapy, and Myofascial Release are just some of the topics covered on this informative website. Readers can gather information and make educated judgments about complementary and alternative medicine. However, when it comes to health care, Hope Instilled is strictly an information and resource hub. There are no assurances of success with alternative treatments any more than there are with conventional ones. It takes more time to see results when using methods that work with the body.

Why Attend Every1in Wellness & Abilities Fair?

People who are currently coping with disabilities are sometimes overlooked when discussions on health and fitness are held. The concepts of diversity and inclusion inform us that everyone should be welcome at the table. Nevertheless, the fact of the matter is that a significant subset of the minority population has been absent from such discussions. The goal of the Every1in Wellness and Abilities Fair is to establish a new benchmark for genuine inclusion. 

Everyone should be welcome at the table.

Every1in is a one-of-a-kind event designed for everyone. People can learn from practitioners of alternative treatments, learn about adaptive arts and hobbies, music therapy, art therapy, as well as organizations that give information and support to those who are currently residing with impairments.

Alternative treatment practitioners offer personalized care, and typically tailor their treatments to the unique needs of each individual. By attending the fair, attendees have the opportunity to consult directly with these practitioners, discuss their specific health concerns, and explore customized treatment plans that prioritize their well-being. 

Jory shares “I have endured horrific health challenges for decades, and know many people have and are facing much worse. It was alternative treatments which led me to wellness, and to live my best life despite my disabilities and chronic pain. When I began my healing journey I only wanted to improve the quality of my life. However, there was a plan for me and I believe that plan is the work I do today.”

The event features over 45 vendors and 10 speakers.
