On 6/8/2011, I was on my way home from work and I was hit from behind by someone texting and driving. After making it to the hospital and speaking with the doctor, I knew I would have a long road ahead of me because I was diagnosed with a T-12 spinal cord injury. While in the hospital for a whole year I had to learn how to swallow and talk and I am still trying to learn how to walk again. I am so happy to have this second chance at life again.
I am grateful to have continued to be able to raise my son and to witness him make many accomplishments in his life. I am so grateful for Neuro Assistance and the beautiful work that this organization has accomplished. It seems like when it is hard to navigate a situation, I first pray and then call Cindi with NAF and she has been able to assist me.
I do not take it for granted and appreciate everything this organization has done for me. This new normal for me has its ups and downs but with God on my side, I know I can make it. Thank God I don’t look like what I have been through.
