On August 17, 2013, following a car accident, I broke my neck at the c6-c7 level, which paralyzed my pectorals at my feet. Needless to say, for a guy as active as me, I found it extremely difficult, especially mentally. Losing the use of his hands and legs at the age of 19 is inexplicable. In the beginning, nurses and doctors don’t go through many channels to tell you their thoughts about your condition: ”you will never walk again, you will probably have to depend on someone all your life, you won’t be able to take the hand of the person you love because your hands won’t move anymore, etc.” It’s hard to hear, but you have the choice to believe it or not. I have been told you won’t be able to do this and that, I could have believed it and let myself fall into the trap of thinking that my life will be miserable, but I decided otherwise. I chose to take one day at a time, give my 110% in everything I do and believe in it. The first years were full of ups and downs, but the important thing is to move forward. It’s important to mention that I could not have come all this way without my family and friends who were simply incredible. It is thanks to them that I was able to continue my rehabilitation at the Neuro-Concept Centre. It is the place where I have been going regularly for almost 4 years now and where I have been able to keep in excellent physical shape, learn to love my different body, gain confidence in my abilities, pursue my passion for sports and much more. Because being healthy and well in your body is important for everyone.
