On June 24th, 2018, Will Cotter suffered a serious spinal cord injury while diving off a dock with friends. Will was instantly paralyzed below the waist, and if it weren’t for the quick thinking and clear minds of his friends, he might not be here today. They pulled him from the bottom of the lake and called 911.
Will is strong and determined. He and his family have made the difficult decision to care for him out of state in Atlanta at The Shepherd Center, one of the nation’s leading spinal cord rehabilitation centers. They will have access to facilities and care to give them the best possible outcome for a fulfilling future.
The Cotters have been so humbled by the outpouring of love and support from their friends, however the family is faced with financial costs – and as friends of the Cotter family, we are asking for your help. There are medical costs, transportation, lost wages, room and board in Atlanta, and other accommodations for Will’s daily living. Through your generous donations, the Cotters can focus on Will’s recovery.
All donations provided will go directly to help Will and his family during their fight. Any excess funds not used will be donated to the Shepherd Center and the Challenged Athletes Foundation.
Thank you so much for your support. #WWW #WillWillWalk
