Pete and his wife, Cindy, have undergone a dramatic change in life after both falling on the ice outside of their home this past February. Pete fell first and broke his neck and back causing him paralysis from the waist down and some also in his arms and hands. When Cindy came running to help him, she fell before she could reach him and broke her hip. They both lay in the snow and ice for 30 minutes yelling for help before a neighbor finally heard them and called 911. They were both rushed to WakeMed Raleigh and underwent surgeries. Cindy stayed about a week and then went through lots of physical therapy to heal. Pete stayed in the neuro ICU for three weeks and then for two and a half months in the WakeMed rehab facility for spinal cord injury. This past Monday, May 11th, he finally came home. But his recovery is far from over. There are so many needs, both physically and financially for Pete and Cindy. The immediate needs are for a wheelchair accessible van to allow them transportation to doctor appointments and physical therapy. Also, to help purchase medical supplies, hire someone to help at home with his care, and pay medical expenses. Anyone who knows Pete and Cindy, would say they are both very special people. Before his injury, Pete was a very active and busy guy, who worked hard and played hard. He loves all things sports and has been very influential in bringing both baseball and hockey to North Carolina, whether through the Durham Bulls, the Raleigh Icecaps, or the Coastal Plain League. He is a fighter and plans to get back to work and life, though the challenges ahead are so great. He's never been afraid of a challenge. He actually thrives on it. Though no one would want or ask for this kind of injury, Pete faces it head on every day. But "no man is an island" and he needs our help. Please help support Pete Bock.
