Be Amazed by a Remarkable Story

Motivate and Entertain your Audience through a Story of Resilience

Watch Eva shine and offer so much as a natural born storyteller.

Going from performing internationally to face her death before turning and limping away; the tale Eva offers is based in the acquisition of severe brain injury. In creating a place for herself whilst rebuilding mind and body, a curious investigation of society was enabled. The thought of ‘getting better’ consumed her every waking moment, encouraging exploration of treatment and studies over many years. These findings complemented the conventional medical options taken.
Eva’s recovery has been holistic in nature.

Alongside physical, mental and personal rehabilitation, Eva Sifis built a career in the disability arts sector taking any opportunity to grow. And the time came to move from her home in Adelaide, to return to live close to the site of the injury in Melbourne.

Here Eva’s impact can be greater.

Chemotherapy, received for stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma in 09, left her cognitive processing affected. Recovering it was a gradual process and stretched over 5 years. Throughout it all though she continued to develop her arts career and business. Now a registered trainer, some of Eva’s work sees development of specially tailored education. This occurs alongside her initial foray of which she is most proud…
By Accident™ is Australia’s first and only peer initiated, informed, developed and led coaching for others whose lives have been both devastated and changed forever by Acquired Brain Injury.

Eva is at home on stage. With ease the audience is strapped in to be taken through a rollercoaster of a story showing how determination, resilience and tenacity can transform.
