David Jeffers was injured on August 1, 2011.
While on vacation with his family at the beach he was struck by a wave, with such force, that he broke two vertebrae (C5 and C6) as well as fractured C4. Because of these injuries, his spinal cord was bruised. He realized immediately that something serious had happened but was unable to move and could not get himself out of the ocean. Fortunately his wife and nephew noticed he wasn’t moving and pulled him to safety. He was operated on in Wilmington and then transferred to CMC in Charlotte. He and his family later decided to transfer him to Shepherd Center in Atlanta, where he completed 4 months of rehabilitation.

David’s therapeutic rec activity has transformed into much more. He is officially an artist. You can check out his art on Instagram @iquadits for those that don’t know what iQuadits means: the “i” is for iPhone because all his art is done using his iPhone, “Quad” is for quadriplegic because he is a C5/6 quadriplegic and “its” is for edits because he edits photos.
