Help Alex

At age 27, my life completely flipped upside down and split in two.  I was a young man, full of energy, opportunity, and hope for the future. On a day that seemed like any other, I had an accident with consequences that would prove to be irreversible. An ill-fated dive from a river’s cliff broke my spine and left me completely paralyzed. For over a year I was totally paralyzed, handicapped. No movement. I couldn’t stand to just be a talking head, and with time I started fighting to overcome the pain and fear every single day. I refused to believe that this was it for me. It was around this time that a woman came. She was a friend to me. She didn’t run from me, she wasn’t afraid. She didn’t give up on me. Our friendship became love, and soon, we married. She became my destiny. She gave me HOPE. She made me want to live again, want to see my children grow. I realized more and more how much I love my family.

Now, I’m 42. My family and I, we overcame many trials together. We take care of each other. We have dreams. One of them is to be able to go and see the OCEAN!!!  However with most of our money going toward medication and treatment, it makes this impossible. The majority of my time is spent in my apartment. But the salt air and the sun are so needed for my skin, bones and wound healing.  If only you knew how badly I want to break these chains, improve my health, gain strength and see the world around me.  

We believe that kind people exist and they can help us make our dreams come true!  And we thank and pray for every open heart!
