June 24th, 2000 in many ways feels like a second birthday. It was the day that changed my life forever. I dove into shallow water, broke my neck, and be came a quadriplegic. My family was told that I would never walk again, and even went as far as saying that I would be “lucky” if I were to ever feed myself again. Through dedication, perseverance, and extremely hard work I took my first steps 7 years later. The following year, Journey Forward was born. To commemorate my 20 year anniversary I'm running for Journey Forward and my goal is to raise a MINIMUM of $20,000 for Journey Forward. Please consider making a donation to my fundraising page – and please know that no donation is too small…..
