Five years have passed since Brian’s near fatal car accident that left him paralyzed from below the waist. As Brian continues to make considerable recovery gains, we knew that his journey would be a marathon. His days are long with intense workouts at Race to Walk near Charlotte, and hours of electrical stimulation to maintain muscle mass in his paralyzed legs. His perseverance and work ethic continues to be remarkable. His former basketball coach at NC State (Herb Sendek) wrote that Brian is the bravest and most determined individuals he has known.

It is very challenging to find the proper balance between striving for recovery from paralysis and preparing for a better life but with physical limitations. While many hours are spent in the rigors of recovery, Brian is also striving to renter the work force full time. His part time work trails have been successful. He recently completed two online certification courses in Project Management and in Pharmaceutical Sales. Just recently, Brian launched a non-profit, the Walk On Foundation, whose mission is to promote an awareness of spinal cord injuries and the advancement of promising treatments for paralysis.
