I'm a quadriplegic, a minor C5 incomplete and a T7 spinal cord injury, and today I stand for the first time without any type of brace or machine or frame, just some forearm crutches. It took 2 and a half years of physical therapy, occupational therapy, stem cell therapy clinical trials, Eksoskeleton walking machine suit, aqua therapy and KAFO leg braces to get me to this point along with a team of 12 high talented, dedicated and hard working therapists at Houston Methodist Hospital at the Texas Medical Center (Largest medical research facility in the world).
