I broke C5-C6,damaged from C4 to C7,and damaged my neck arteries. Unfortunately I didn’t remember what happened right away, it took me 3 years to get the flashback.
Being a quadriplegic for 5+ years has been very challenging, for my loved ones and me… It’s been like a roller-coaster that never stops, and believe me I used to love those, lol! But I must say I have been more than blessed with my family that doesn’t let me fall, and with all my new family and friends(Trainers, Pt’s, Ot’s,Uncle Darlin, Uncle Mark .)that have been there for me supporting me in this journey, I couldn’t do it without all of you, Thank, thank you, thank you everyone🥰 for your support♾, love❤,prayers🙏 and more a long this journey🌖…
This year has been very challenging I must admit it’s getting harder, pain is 24/7🥴, lost very important people in my life💔🖤,my van hasn’t been working for the past 3 weeks🥺, stress is high🤯 and hopes start getting low.😔
The year started off with Covid, car breaking down every month has left us with a huge debt, and therapy was off the table, we just can’t afford it anymore. That is when my mom starts looking for grants, and so we started applying. After a couple of weeks of applying we started getting replies, one more time I got blessed.
Challenge Athletes has helped me with a month of therapy at Adapt Functional Movement Center, and then I was blessed to be awarded the wellness grant through another amazing foundation called Rally4Reilly, covering my therapy 2x a week from May to the end of this year 2022.
I also started participating in a non invasive neuromodulation research study at Renue Health, 2x a week and to be honest the progress has been amazing. So thankful with God that helped me when I was ready to give up,he didn’t let me, instead he sent all this blessings.
Now I have therapy 4 to 5 times a week, and even when it’s a very slow recovery, for me it’s the first step that counts, and I know I am getting there. 💪🏼❣️
For me It’s just about living one day at a time.
I have learned that you just can’t give up on Faith, you can’t give up on Hope,and you can never give up on Love or family❤. And with the Army beside me, giving up is not an option.
I must also recognize that I have come a long way and even when I might cry my head to sleep every night, I am proud of myself , for everything I have overcome.
So I wanted to share this news and updates with all of you, I know I haven’t been very active on social media lately, but as you can see it’s only because I have been blessed and busy.We got this!🫂💪🏼❣️ 🦼👩🦽👩🏾🦯🚶♀️💃🙏🙌♾❤
Thank you so much for all your love,prayers and donations! God does listen… I love you 😍 💗 ❣️💪🏼🥳🫂🙌
