Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Turning 27 with a Spinal Cord Injury

I (@ismaeelcapa_mlg) know all my time is spent in my wheelchair because of my SCI, but this year I finally blew out the candles of my birthday cake. I did it standing Forest Gump style. It’s something a bit unusual, we are used to seeing people do this seated. Today I’m celebrating that I never give up, that my life has always been full of gaps and I always jumped them. I still fight them but move around them. Sometimes I have to do it alone and sometimes I have the support of others. It's beautiful to read messages, see pictures and the reality of this. My family never fails me. Thank you very much to everyone. Sometimes life gives you other chances.
