After a bike accident left him paralyzed from the chest down, a man says van life helped him regain his independence

Kirk Williams

“An injury like this doesn’t have to change what you do, only how you do it.”

Our spinal cord injury client Kirk Williams was recently featured in a stunning article and photo series for Insider. Since a 2009 bike accident, Kirk has made incredible strides in independence, including participating in international travel and renovating a van for complete accessibility and self-sufficiency.

After his eye-opening international experiences, Kirk began giving back to others living with spinal cord injuries through an initiative to raise funds for wheelchair giveaways.

“Hopefully, I can do something within my power to help bring more opportunities to others.”
