- Unfortunately, it took me a year to find out about Aaron Baker. Fortunately, his story has given me more hope about my own potential for recovery than anything else. Find out what the words “One in a million” can mean to someone as determined as Aaron.
- Just days after my accident, Grant Korgan told me he was my new best friend. That he’d been there, that he knew what I was going through. An accomplished speaker, published author, badass athlete, South Pole explorer, and promoter of all things positive, he continues to inspire me everyday.
- Dale Hull was the first person I learned about who had suffered a similar injury to me and had gotten back on his feet. His story and the work his organization is doing now is truly commendable.
- Patrick Rummerfield has not only recovered fully from his Spinal Cord Injury, he walks, runs, rides a bike and has completed an Ironman Triathlon! I want to follow in his footsteps and be the next person to do an Ironman.
- What do you do when you’re an olympic athlete, suffer a SCI and you’re told you’re never going to walk again? Amazing TED talk
- Great story about a family that suffered that was literally torn apart by SCI and how Brock fought his way back to walking
- Another SCI victim personally told me that he owed his full recovery (he is back riding his bicycle regularly) to the work he did with Mike Barwis. (Scroll all the way down to see his TED talk and a couple of the guys he’s helped to get back on their feet)
- Redefining “disabled” and never letting adversity get in the way of success, great message from this brave woman
- My main rehab center and possibly my second home since my accident. A place where “everybody knows your name” and a must visit if you live in Northern California with a SCI.
- I was fortunate enough to meet Dale and Jan (see my link above) when I went to Neuroworx for two weeks and learned from their amazing team of people.
- Ekso skeleton robot. The future without wheelchairs. Enough said.
- The most informative and hopeful book I’ve read about the prospects of neurological recovery and the crucial concept of Neuroplasticity.
