  • The Diving Accident That Led to My Spinal Cord Injury

    You always hear that life can change in a matter of seconds; in just the blink of an eye; one single unforeseen instance that you never imagined could happen to you. We all want to believe we’re invincible, right? It could never possibly happen to you. At 23, I was cocky enough to think I […]
