Walk a Mile in My Shoes

My name is Albert Cheong and I became paralyzed at the age of twelve. I was diagnosed with paralysis/Guillain-Barre syndrome and have since coped with my disability. Now nearing my thirties I am worried more than ever as my body continues to grow weak, I deal with constant back pain and cannot walk long distances anymore due to the physical discomfort in my leg.

Thanks to technological advances an innovative medical deviced can help me walk normal again. The Bioness L300 sends electrical pulses to my leg muscles via sensors to stimulate nerves and synchronize muscle movements, causing me to walk normal instead of limping. 

However, my medical insurance will not cover the Bioness L300 and I simply cannot afford it. So I have turned to Go Fund Me in hopes of a miracle. 

My dream is to walk and feel normal again. To excerise like a normal person and not have to deal with back pain and physical discomfort in my leg.

Thank you for taking the time to Walk a Mile in My Shoes and helping me reach my goal.
