Chris Davis was coaching his son’s mountain biking team on May 31st when he fell and fractured his neck (C3/C4). The original prognosis was that he would be completely quadriplegic with no movement and ventilator dependent. Since then, Chris has made remarkable progress so that he is now breathing on his own and also regaining significant movement in his arms and legs. This progress is absolutely incredible, but it has been made possible because of Chris and his family’s incredibly hard work, but also because of the critical support of a team of trained professionals who know how to maximize and push every little bit of function.
There are three important things to know about life after a catastrophic injury:
• The first two years are critical: It is possible for the body to recover function after a catastrophic spinal cord injury, but the first year (and then to a lesser extent, the second year), is when the most gains will happen.

Keep up the superhero work, Chris and family. So grateful for the tremendously supportive community that's rallying around you. I imagine this road to recovery seems daunting. Overwhelmingly so. Yet you're going places. Day by day. One triumph at a time. You got this.
