Bullet strikes Charlotte man in bed, leaving him paralyzed and facing a new life with limited resources

Marcus Pinson’s life was turned upside down on January 9th, 2022, when a person one floor below him accidentally fired a bullet through the ceiling, striking him in the back as he lay in bed upstairs. The resulting injury has left him with a complete T11-T12 spinal cord injury and paraplegia (paralysis from the waist down).

Marcus just finished his first round of Stem Cell Treatment!!!! He is so excited to see the hopeful improvement in function but knows he will need another treatment prior to the end of 2022 for maximum effectiveness. He still needs you help!!

Just to give everyone an update, Marcus did NOT get into an intensive rehab facility and, yes, we are incredibly disappointed, as it's crucial for recovery and gain of maximum function. We are currently trying to temporarily modify his 2 story unit until he has SSI, which will enable him to prove income to apply for a one-story home. Let's just say, it's been a really rough week and if it weren't for the generous support from all of you, I really don't know what we would do. Literally, you've kept a roof over his head during this transition. You guys are AMAZING and we cannot thank you enough!!!!! #STANDWITHMARCUS #2sexy4mychair #paralife #paranormal
