I was Mt. Biking with friends up in Vermont after work.
We were cutting down a hill at the very end of run, and my front wheel sunk in some soft dirt.
I went over the handlebars and did a somersault. Broke my neck. Stood straight up. And fell to the ground.
I waited with friends for four hours for a helicopter and was med vacated out of there to Dartmouth where I had surgery.
I was in ICU for over a week, then transferred to Fletcher Allen Hospital in Colchester, VT to learn how to live in a wheelchair.
I now do therapy as often as I can afford to at Journey Forward in Canton, MA.
I go to an accessible gym/YMCA in Quincy, MA.
I have PT job in VT from June to Oct running an invasive aquatic species patrol program on a huge lake in Northern VT by kayaking.
I have a girlfriend and live by myself.
All thanks to therapy I have received in past, I have regained and continue to regain more everyday due to hard work.
Im in need of help to pay for expensive therapy at Journey Forward Rehab in Canton, MA.
