Prayers For Jeremy: Living Life As A Quadriplegic

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Jeremy James

Staying Strong But Having A Heavy Weight To Lift

"Sometimes we may be placed in a dark place and feel that we are burried, but really we were planted in a dark place as a seed to grow!"

On May 29th 2017, you could say my life flashed before my eyes, but I didnt see this one coming. For the last 7 months I have woken up everyday as a Quadriplegic, which can be looked at as a blessing and a curse. I was found next to a 15 foot wall and pronounced dead. I was brought back to life in the ambulance on the way to ICU. I went from tubes feeding me, breathing for me, and not being able to remember the ones I loved let alone not being able to say a word to them.

I went through hard work mentally and physically to now be able to speak again, eat on my own, and laugh with the people around me. I have come a long way but still have much further to go. I still plan to follow my dreams, but I am asking for your help. It's a battlefield in this way of life that has been handed to me and I am asking for whatever help people may be able to give. The first step for me is to make it out of the healthcare facility I am in and into my own place. I plan to use funds for housing, equipment, a power wheelchair, a vehicle to get around in, and other medical needs.

Whatever you can do to help would be greatly appreciated. If you are not able to donate right now, please share and pass the word.
