On the 31st of August 2014 Joel had a fall over a staircase railing and broke his C5 vertebrae. The injury that night left Joel an incomplete quadriplegic. Joel was in the infantry in the Australian army and had just returned from service in Afghanistan a few months prior to the accident. Since Joel's accident, he has been determined to work hard and one day walk again. He recently returned from a 6 week stint at Project Walk San Diego where he made many gains and plans to return in the future.
