Most people that know me could tell you a little about what I’ve been through the past few months. On January 12th, 2016 I had a terrible motor vehicle accident. I suffered multiple fractures to my neck and back, with damage to my spinal cord, which caused me to have neurogenic bladder and bowel function. Along with that I had a broken hand, arm, femur, and multiple rib fractures. Every time I tell the story the list just seems to go on and on. After many surgeries, I was left with rods and screws in my back, plates in my arm, a rod in my leg, a cast on my hand, and plenty of staples to go around. In addition to that I had to have a halo screwed into my head for three months in order to hold my neck stationary and a tracheostomy to aid in my breathing. But I was alive and truly blessed to be so. Of course due to my condition I had to withdraw from school as soon as possible. However, it wasn’t long before I stated that I was determined to be enrolled back in college for the fall of 2016. In the aftermath of it all, I was unable to even move my legs for over a month after my back surgery. It was probable that I may not possibly walk again after what happened. But thankfully, after many months of healing, recovery, and rigorous rehabilitation, today I walk with one cane, maintain regular bodily function, and am re-enrolled at the University of South Carolina as a Computer Science major. I am creating this GoFundMe in hopes of becoming eligible for the chance to receive a GoFundMe Scholarship that is worth $10,000. I have fought long and hard to even get back to school, as well as for my own health and well-being. The aid of a grant for my tuition would go a long way in lifting many financial burdens I already face. In order to qualify I must have at least ten different contributors by September 28th. My main concern is not to reach $1,000 but rather the ten contributors by the deadline. Even if you may not be able to donate any money, please just share my story to your friends and family that might. Thanks everyone for any kind of support! #GFMScholarship
