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.
