Saturday, July 22, was a beautiful 90 degree day at his home at Lake Anna, Virginia. Adam and his friends were playing volleyball at a popular Lake Anna sandbar. Adam dove for the ball, hitting his head on the bottom. He instantly realized a transformation throughout his body, as he was floating face down, there was an electrical sensation followed immediately by an inability to move.
By standers quickly came to his rescue.
Adam sustained a C5 spinal cord injury. C5 injuries usually result in total paralysis of the wrists, hands, trunk, and legs.
Even with this devastating injury, Adam, as usual is putting his friends and family first, putting on a smile, and cracking jokes to ease our fears.
The Shepherd Center Inc. in Atlanta GA is a rehab center for cases like Adam's, and he will be transfered there on August 1. The center informed Adam's parents of the $1 million needed in the first year for rehab and equipment.
Adam, along with his parents Shawn and Colleen, and brother Peyton, greatly appreciate any and all contributions.
Adam has the drive, commitment and determination needed to recover to the fullest. Please help him with your contribution and check back often for updates on his progress!
