Sherown Campbell

Despite the diagnosis and with the help, love, and support of others, I'm walking again

I'm Sherown and I have spent most of my life active in sports, even setting the track and field school record in college for the 400m. I credited a lot of my physical success to my mental strength, but that was put to the test starting in May of 2013. I lost my sister to depression and suicide which was the hardest thing I ever dealt with. However, it made me promise myself to appreciate life, live to the fullest, and aspire to be better. 8 months later, I found myself struggling to keep my word as I laid in the hospital with a broken neck and a spinal cord injury from a freak accident wrestling with my friend. I was C4-C5 incomplete ASIA B; a quadriplegic. Despite the diagnosis and with the help, love, and support of others, I'm walking again. I keep working to better myself and make the best of the opportunity given to me and hopefully I can keep finding ways to do anything.
