Cameron Corder

In 2013, SFC Cameron Corder was on his 4th overseas tour, this time as an aviation medic stationed at FOB Shukvani in Afghanistan.  On December 6, 2013, Cameron was injured while administering medical care to an injured US Marine. The Marine was suffering from a TBI and believed that Cameron was 'the enemy' who was trying to kill him.  The Marine slammed Cameron down onto the floor aircraft and bent him backwards over top of his medical tool kit.  After that, Cameron was in severe pain and quickly losing sensation in his legs, as well as bladder control.
 
On December 18, 2013 Cameron was medically evacuated from Kandahar, Afghanistan to Landstuhl, Germany.  On the morning of December 21, 2013, Cameron awoke paralyzed from the navel down because a disk had ruptured in his spine, causing complete spinal cord compression at L5-S1.  He was rushed into emergency surgery.
 
On December 27, 2013 Cameron had a second surgery in Germany because the disk had rebulged, pinching off his spinal cord yet again.  It was during this surgery that the surgeon nicked his spinal cord, which caused a cerebral spinal fluid leak and resulted in an abscess in Cameron's spine.
 
After being transferred to Walter Reed Medical Facility on January 2, 2014, Cameron had two additional surgeries in an attempt to debride the infection.  Those two attempts were unsuccessful. 
 
Because of how badly the nerves were crushed, Cameron has permanently lost feeling in his right leg and foot, has permanent bowel and bladder dysfunction, and is in chronic pain day and night.  He still has an abscess in his spine, as well.  He is, however, able to walk with canes and a knee brace to stabilize his right leg.  He is very much looking forward to receiving a vehicle with adaptations, so that he finally has the freedom to come and go without depending on someone to drive him.
