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 over 3 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 to everyone in Raleigh for such a great fundraiser March 12th! It was so good to see everyone and be back home! I can tell that Mike has been rejuvenated, it was a really big boost in moral to get back home, for him to see his restaurant up and running and to get a better idea of how he can help support the business from a distance. We will be making regular trips home of course, but this one was something special thanks to all of you! We were able to raise around $6,000 which is such a big help on our medical expenses, we truly can’t thank you enough. Love you guys!! Sarah
