Moving Forward With A Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Life Changing Spinal Cord Injury

I am 22 years old & have a T12 spinal cord injury. I was injured my senior year of high school at the age of 17. I fell out of my apartment bedroom window & snapped my back in half. I use a manual wheelchair on a daily basis. I have been injured for almost four years now & that doesn't get any easier. I am now part of a wheelchair dance team, "LA Rollettes" led by Chelsie Hill. The dance team is honestly the best thing that happened to me. I found something I love as well as some really great friends. Prior to my accident I was scared & interested in joining dance, but never did. I had a second chance at making that happen & it's something I am very blessed to say.
