Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Elvis Bienvenido Valera

The Incident

Hello, my name is Elvis. I’m currently 25 years old, living in Santo Domingo.  The 14th of October 2015 I was spending time with some friends when a discussion started between people at the local bar we where hanging out at.  While people where discussing and fighting, one of the aggressors apparently confused me with another person in the fight and stabbed my back with a knife. The incident affected my spinal cord and it's been three years since I used a wheelchair since.
