 MAKAWAO, HI
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.

It's been a while, but I've been working hard on my strength. Today, I sat up in my bed while balancing for more than 40 seconds. Love you all.

Hey guys, I know it's been awhile since my last update but thank you all again for your support. I recently had a bladder surgery in Honolulu and am feeling better everyday. I continue to push myself in my exercises everyday to make me stronger. I'm planning my trip to project walk sometime after summer, just waiting on some updates of my new wheelchair I will be getting soon. I can't wait to work towards my independence and ultimately reach my purpose in life to pave the road for me to find the formula to a full recovery.
