Journey 4 Jake- my story with a Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Journey 4 Jake- how it happend

My name is Jake Coops-Blume. I'm just a normal 15 year old teenager who suffered a spinal cord injury from a sport I used to be so committed to. This sport was motocross racing, and it was a big part of my life. I broke my c6-c7 vertebrae and pinched my spinal cord leaving me a quadriplegic. I was in hospital for 9 months but now I'm finally home, and smashing goals doing physio two times a week and exercises at home everyday. My biggest goal is to be on the Australian Wheelchair Rugby team and compete at the Paralympics. Head over to Instagram and give me a follow and watch my journey to recovery:  @jakecoopsblume
