My Account Of Life With A Spinal Cord Injury and Paralysis

On July 16th 1994, my life took a dramatic turn, I had a low speed fall from a mountain bike, which left me with a broken neck at the C2,3 and 4 vertebrae and total body paralysis. I was completely paralysed from the neck down fighting for my life. I was now destined to spend my life as a quadriplegic or tetraplegic, with none of the body and muscle movements I used to take for granted. Spinal cord injury was going to become a central point of my life.  Spinal Injuries occur suddenly and in most cases without warning. Each day hundreds of people worldwide and their families and friends are coming to terms with a new spinal injury and paralysis.  This website is intended to help other spinally injured persons and people close to them, after their lives are affected by this devastating disability.  However, I know now that life doesn't stop after a spinal cord injury and in fact it can go on getting better

The site now contains some nice community message boards and an easy to use chat room

My life has changed beyond comprehension since my spinal cord injury, I honestly believe that I am a better person now because of my experience. If you would like to find out more please come inside
