My name is Daniel Carter. I currently live in bristol, VA and recently heard about your situation. I thought I would send you a note and let you know you are not alone in your fight for recovery and the overall fight for a cure to SCI.
In 2001, at the age of 18 and a college freshman at Emory&Henry, I sustained a spinal cord injury during an early season football scrimmage. I was a linebacker and had my head in the wrong place when I made a routine tackle. My injury left me a quadriplegic C4-5 incomplete.
I too spent time in Shepherd Center and outpatient in kingsport when I came home.
Anywho, I just wanted to touch base and let you know you are not alone. I have been living thru this fight for 15 years. If you ever need advice, encouragement, information, ect please don't hesitate to ask.
I wake up every morning with hope and optimism that a cure for SCI is tangible. Be sure to keep working out, eating right, and prayer.
I went through this with my son Zack Wilson who was in a wreck on his way to work at Wise Recycling in Bristol, Virginia. You and your family have the love, support and prayers so many. I spoke with Robin today and she is heaven sent!!! I know this is hard, but never stop believing!
