Help Support David’s Journey
David recently suffered a life-changing spinal cord injury from an ATV accident. His C4 and C6-T1 vertebrae were fractured and his spinal cord was compressed. He is now a quadriplegic. He has begun rehab in Madison, WI and is already making great progress. However, as you can imagine, the care he needs is very expensive, which is why we need your help.

David is presently in Omaha, NE at QLI receiving some great PT and OT. The people there are outstanding and helping him to achieve some vertical status which he has not had much of yet. This should lead him to being able to be upright for part of everyday. Eventually he may be able to have a wheelchair that could stand him up someday.
He is also working harder at getting stronger by lifting weights and strengthening that core strength.

David is a student at UW-Madison. Well not actually but he has a student ID and is attending Adaptive Fitness Classes on Fridays at UW. He also went in yesterday for driver evaluation. We will be having to take him for more driving lessons and getting the vehicle adapted for him. His goal is to drive by his birthday in March. He has gained much strength back in his right shoulder and arm which were injured while he was at the rehab center. So that is great. We were able to put in an asphalt pathway in the yard for him to get around easier at home. We also had an automatic door put in on the house so he has a remote to control that and the garage door.
So things have definitely progressed in one year!!!
Oh yes…his FES exercise bike is a blessing. When he is hooked up to that it is great to see the smile on his face when he sees his own legs moving with the motor and electrical stimulation!!
Thanks everyone for your help to achieve these items. Without you all of this would not have been possible!!!
