On July 19, 2020 my life changed in a heartbeat.

Wow has time flown by. In the beginning of November I successfully had my second neck surgery to stabilize my existing anterior construct. I have been working extremely hard ever since to continue to make gains in my strength and function. After a quick break home for Christmas I am back in Boston and returning to nearly 3 hours of therapy a day, 5 days a week. I encourage you all to watch my progress by following my Instagram account “vittysvoyage” as that is my way of saying thank you for all your support. Wishing everyone a safe and healthy new year!

As I approach a new chapter in this journey of mine I want to again thank everyone who has supported me. From directly donating to my campaign, running 100 miles for #milesforvitty, boot camp fundraisers, silent auctions to sending along words and care packages of encouragement, thank you. I am speechless that I have met my fundraising goal with over 600 contributors!!! That truly takes my breath away. I love that people are sharing my story and bringing a community together that was never intended to exist. I am being discharged from Spaulding this Friday after two months of intensive inpatient rehab and could not be happier. I will be staying in Boston to continue to utilize Spaulding for out patient therapy. Unfortunately, I still have a long road ahead of me. In about a month I will require a second surgery to stabilize the hardware in my neck. This is necessary, and I have no doubt that this community will help get me through it. From the bottom of my heart I thank you for your support as I raise my fundraising goal to help support my next chapter.
