I was injury Mt. Biking in Vermont. And am paralyzed from the chest down and temporarily lost the use of my hands.
My whole life was movement. I loved skiing, biking, hiking, kayaking, dancing you name it. Becoming paralyzed and stuck in a wheelchair took it all away. I was devistated.
I have been working hard with aggressive Spinal Cord Injury Therapy at Journey Forward in Massachusetts ever since. And have regained a lot over the years.
Increased trunk control. Regained muscle. Cardio. Endurance and overall physical and mental health. And have been able to get up and walk on my feet every week with the help of an advanced treadmill called a lokomat.
I am in desperate need to continue this therapy as it is $100 an hour and difficult/impossible for me to pay.
Please contribute if possible. Anything will help.
Thanks so much!
