Jesi Stracham - Road To Recovery
Physical therapy is extremely important to her recovery. She has learned through Jordan that the more you work (PT) the sooner you may see results. Unfortunately, her insurance only covers 20 visits.
The funds collected through this effort will be used to pay for significant medicalexpenses, and allow her the opportunity to focus exclusively on her recovery. Any contributions are greatly appreciated by Jesi and her family. No donation is too small.
Thank-you for your consideration.

It's been a while since I have updated my page! A lot has happened since my last update. I’ve been living my dream and getting to race again. Being in that machine gives me something no one else can; the chance to forget I am paralyzed. My birthday was a big celebration, (not just because it was on Father's Day), but because I made it to 23. Something that almost didn't happen for me. I am very grateful to be alive and apart of so many great things! I had the opportunity to meet Drew Clayborn, one of the most positive humans you will ever meet in your lifetime. I also got to soak up this lovely North Carolina sun in a friend’s pool over the weekend, getting a bit of therapy in it too! I am leaving for Arizona at the end of this week to spend a month and a half with Jordan! I get the opportunity to go to his therapy facility, paying out of pocket, so I don’t miss a beat while I’m spending time with my man. Since my last update a lot of my hip movement has come back! I can now roll over from my stomach to my back, all in my sleep!!!! This is huge for me! I cannot wait to until August when I get my custom braces so I can start moving around without my wheelchair! I hope that insurance will cover these but along with therapy they aren’t really helping me much. I know I have a long road to full recovery, but in a little under 6 months I am doing things the doctors said I would never accomplish! I am very positive and very motivated to continue to kick butt, getting up off it, onto my feet!!
As you may have heard and I am thrilled to finally announce:
Jordan, John Hatch, and myself have established the NeuroScaffold Foundation, a non profit, 501c3 pending, dedicated to both current and future scaffold recipients. All donations are tax deductible retroactively once we receive our 501c3 status. The BOD: Jordan, Secretary, John, Treasurer, and myself as President as well as Executive Director. The three of us make a great team and all bring something different to the table.
We do have a web page which is set up to receive donations. http://neuroscaffoldfoundation.org/ It is just a landing page as I will be working double time to design the site and content as quickly as possible.
Those of you that work for companies that make charitable donations, if you wanted to get me the name and contact info of the decision maker I will be happy to make contact :)
Also, be on the look out for more media attention. We have definitely sparked some serious interest!
And last, THANK YOU ALL for your support. So many people have been a part of making this happen, whether you know it or not! Even words of encouragement have been so inspirational. As Jesi always says, GO BIG....you know the rest...
