Just keep pushing
Hi there! My name is Martí, I’m 29 and I’m from Barcelona, Spain. About 6 years ago I came to the US (Dalton, GA) to marry my girlfriend at the time and start our new life pursuing the American Dream. Fast forward to about a year ago, we pretty much had made it: we had good jobs, we had built our own house, we had an 8-month-old baby boy and we were going to start our own business on the side. All of that changed on Feb, 24th when I had a car wreck that left me, a quadriplegic. I’m C5-6 with mobility and function of a C7 incomplete. At first, I felt like our life was falling apart, but soon and with the help of my wife, family, and friends I realized that nothing fell apart. I was still the same optimistic and energetic guy with the same goals and the same hunger to eat the world one bite at a time and be happy with my family. I can still do everything I wanted and enjoy a happy life, I just need to push a little harder.
