Wheel to live

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

On May 21st, 2016, I fell from the 4th floor of a building while working on a construction site breaking my neck. I became a quadriplegic & life changed in an instant. Not just for me, but for my entire family. The initial devastation had me feeling like my life was over, but with time my perspective has changed.

"You'll be surprised to know just how far you can come from the point where you thought it was the end."   This instills the belief that we should live each day as though it were our last.. live each day with vigor, don’t wait to do something that is important to you, find happiness in each day and don’t stress the small things. Life can throw a curve ball at any given time and change everything. No matter how tough the situation is.. you are tougher!
