How gymnastics caused my spinal cord injury
My name is Freddy. I am 21 years old from Cali, Colombia. 18 years ago, I suffered from a gymnastics accident. I fractured my C4 and C5. I am now a functioning quadriplegic eager to live my life each and every day. Life has not been easy as I have been bedridden for two years with tracheostomy. I thank God and my family for their great support and seek to create myself as a figure of inspiration and motivation. I'm in my third semester of nutrition and dietetics and I do it all using a wheelchair. I am happy that God is with me. Don't ever let anybody tell you that you can't do something. Use your mind and energy to be positive.
