Dear Family and Friends,

I’m writing you today in hopes that you will read my story and see my dream. As many of you may know, I have always loved horses and I started riding when I was 12 years old. I rode for the next ten years until my accident. On August 12, 2003 the horse I was riding, named Little Bandit, decided to rear up. Within a couple of seconds the animal fell sideways on top of me. My C5 and C6 vertebrae dislocated, instantly paralyzing me from the torso down. I spent approximately four months in the hospital and, though my doctors said my chances of walking were slim to none, I took it upon myself to keep exercising and stretching. After several years of swimming, yoga, acupuncture, and weight lifting my body’s muscular system started reacting like ripples in the water. Where I was only able to lift a pound with my biceps in the past I am now able to lift twenty pounds. My triceps, laterals, abdominals, and hip flexors have all regained movement. I have worked hard to regain my strength and I hope that you will recognize my determination to walk.
