As they say, God works in mysterious ways.
At 23, my ambitious, focused, and aggressive drive has been jolted or at least put on hold. This past Presidents Day, I had a catastrophic ski accident. As a result, I pinched my spinal cord, among an ugly list of breaks, punctures, and other multiple wounds requiring several reconstructive surgeries.

Hi Alex. My name is Amy Muha and my father was paralyzed when he was 23 also. He had an unknown spinal tumor in his thoracic spine at T9, and became a paraplegic. I was 5 months old and my mom was 6 weeks pregnant with my sister. He passed away at age 70 about 3 years ago. He was the most incredible father a girl could want. He was an accountant and worked every day. At that time in 1968, the technology did not exist like today and he moved himself every day with only his upper body. He took my sister and I to the movies and was our softball coach. We didn’t see him any differently than any other dad other than he used a wheelchair. He didn’t complain and lived his life like the chair did not hinder him. At the end of his life due to cancer and sepsis, we asked him how he was able to get up every day and keep his spirits up and he said that the alternative was to lie in bed and feel sorry for myself and that wouldn’t change anything so he just decided that he would just do what he had to do with what life had presented. He was my hero. I tell you this story as a daughter of a paraplegic because if my father was alive he would tell you to keep going and have a family if possible because you should not let your disability define you.
