I am writing to you on behalf of my son, Caleb, who 20 years ago suffered a C4, C5 spinal cord injury as a result of a diving accident. Caleb is a quadriplegic who must use a wheelchair and is dependent on others for assistance with daily living tasks. Growing up Caleb was constantly active, surfing, playing music, always working hard toward his goals. He carried that same determination forward through his injury process by always staying positive, helping others, going to college and putting 100% of himself into whatever project he happened to be working on.
In 2013, Caleb began an aggressive exercise program at Push To Walk in Riverdale, NJ in preparation for his first round of stem cell treatments which he received on September 27, 2013. This powerful combo, along with almost daily trips to the gym, has produced excellent results. The increased independence and strength has opened new doors as Caleb is finishing his Permaculture Design Certification and starting a brand new career. Despite many years of obstacles the future is promising.
