To the Abyss and Back

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Shay Reller

I never asked why it happened or why it happened to me of all people, simply because I believe it does not really matter

My name is Shai Reller. I am 35 years old and I live in Netanya, Israel. Twelve years ago I was badly injured in bus accident during a trip to Nepal. As a result, I remained almost completely paralyzed from the neck down, and confined to a wheelchair. At this point, I decided that I would try to fulfill all my plans, despite the injury and I went to learn my BA in Economics and MBA in business administration which I graduated with honors. Today, I am working as an analyst in a telecommunications company. The truth, I never asked why it happened or why it happened to me of all people, simply because I believe it does not really matter. I chose to give a good and positive meaning to my life. I travel for pleasure at home and abroad. I receive and give love in a partnership which is now 3 years strong. I determine goals and conquer peaks just as I did in the Nepal mountain. In the last four years, I share as much as possible about my experiences from the recent years. "To the Abyss and Back" is the name of my lecture in which it's main goal is to help people understand the strength of positive thinking, optimism, faith and will power and to understand that we can do everything!
