On November 20, 2015 Michael Thor was involved in a motorcycle accident, that caused a catastrophic spinal cord injury. He suffered a C2 fracture of the spine, and while it is an incomplete injury, the bruising on the spinal cord has left him a quadriplegic with a long road to recovery.
Recovery from a spinal injury is a very difficult journey, no doctor can tell you exactly how he will heal or how long it will take. For us it has been almost 4 years and while Mike is still unable to make any functional movement like feeding himself, scratching his face, etc. he has gained the independence to hand drive chair, take steps with max assist and do stand a pivot transfers rather than using a hoyer lift. We know with continued therapy he will one day be able to reach his face and regain even more independence. He has come very far, but we need help!

Thank you so much to everyone that has contributed to Mike’s overall care and expenses since the N&O article was published. We are so humbled and appreciative of the kindness and continued encouragement we receive from you all. The world is unfair and cold sometimes, but your kindness creates balance and warmth that provides hope for us and for many others that, “it is going to be ok”. Many blessings to everyone who follows our journey and supports us along the way. May kindness return to you in the same beautiful way it was given.
