We're so proud to have played a role in this: "Paraplegic man overcomes impossible odds, finds way to have family"
It's impossible. I can't do it. These are things we've all been guilty of saying, but Erik Fugunt has defied all odds—more than once.

When a double-flip gone awry left gymnast Jorge Valdez paralyzed with a dislocated neck in 2011, doctors feared he would never walk again. But just seven days after The Miami Project University of Miami Miller School of Medicine surgeons opted for a still-experimental treatment involving induced hypothermia, Valdez walked out of the hospital. *Warning: this video contains content some may deem graphic

“It's been over 23 years since that tragic day on the beach. I often wonder what I would've done with my life had I not broken my neck. The doctor in Hawaii who did my surgery told my mom I would curse the day he saved my life. I'd actually like to thank him. I've been blessed in so many ways since that day – my life would not have been nearly as fulfilling had it not happened.” via US News & World Report

This #SummerSafetyTip is relevant all year but especially important in the months when there are more teen drivers on the road, more vacation road trips and more bicycles on the road: Give driving your full attention! Avoid distractions including texting. Never run a red light. Never drive after drinking alcohol. Wear a seat belt. Properly place young children in age, height and weight appropriate safety or booster seats.
