On 8/22/01, at 12:30 pm MST, my life was turned upside down and I was run over by an uninsured driver and put in a wheelchair as a C7 Quadriplegic. It's been a journey through hell and back. Obviously the best days disabled aren’t as good as the best days healthy and able. Nevertheless I’m making the best of it. I’m working, helping others less fortunate than me, and doing quite well in a wheelchair. Given no options, I decided to overcome adversity and take advantage of opportunities whenever possible. Today I am very grateful for my second chance at life.
