Help Me Walk Again!

This past August, a few months before my 27th birthday, I was injured in a devastating car accident while on a family road trip. I lost my mother in the accident, and I suffered a spinal cord injury at the T2 level leaving me paralyzed from the chest down.

It's been 2.5 years since my injury and I am excited to report that I am dancing professionally with AXIS Dance Company and producing a new music project ONIKHO, two of the last things I thought I'd be doing post-accident. Thank you everyone for your continual support.

Hi everyone, it's been about four months since I've left the hospital and I have made significant progress in my recovery thanks to all of your generous support. Lately I have been focusing on improving my strength by working out twice a week at SciFit in Pleasanton, CA and taking adaptive swimming lessons once a week.

Today I was one of SciFit's first clients to test out their new Ekso, or bionic legs! Check out a video of me takin' a walk:

We had met at SCI-FIT in which my son also goes. Stay strong and never give up. You look great. The Ekso is a great part of therapy and has helped so many. Good Luck!
