Hoku's recovery

On 7/11/11 while working as a youth camp counselor I sustained an injury and was left with a C4/C5 spinal chord injury.  I spent some time at Queens Medical Center in Honolulu and was later flown to the Craig Hospital in Colorado for rehabilitation.  Since my injury I have made a lot of progress.  I am able to breath without a ventilator and have regained some movement in my upper arms.  I still have a long way to go and that's why I am asking for help. Project Walk in San Diego specializes in helping people like me walk again.  It's an intense physical therapy program and I can't wait to go there and work hard.  My goal is to raise 25,000 so I can go to Project Walk this summer.  The money I raise will help pay for the program and also my rent and living expenses. Thank you for reading my story and your support! 

Selina Blackwell is my treasurer helping me keep track of the expenses.
Spenci Aguiar is my campaign manager, keeping you all updated on my present progress.
