On August 31st, I sustained a traumatic C3-C7 injury to my spinal cord. I was chest deep in the waters off Narragansett beach when, facing the shoreline was hit by a wave from behind. Despite a one month survival rate of approximately 25%, I survived. Facing extensive medical care and rehabilation that extended over many months and the long road that followed, my life had changed forever and this is part of my story.
