Fallen Fire Fighter Continues Fighting

I am a 41 year old quadriplegic. I was a firefighter for almost 12 years when a drunk driver pushed my family's car off the road. In the car was my wife and two small children, 3 years and 1 year of age. Fortunately the kids were not harmed in the accident. My wife suffered a broken back and me a broken neck with a cut spinal cord leaving me a c5-c6 quadriplegic.
I was athletic before the accident and am now trying to rebuild that part of my life. I am looking to raise funds for a new hand cycle bicycle so I can participate in half and full marathons. Any help in reaching this goal will be appreciated more than words can say.
I was a fire fighter, fighting to save others. Now, I am a fighter trying to save my life, making it the best I can. Thank you in advance for your donations.
