One accident on what should have been a beautiful Easter Sunday family outing, a hike to Paria, resulted in 15 year old Ayden being paralysed from the neck down.
In his exicitment on reaching the Paria river, after the long hike, Ayden dived in without checking the depth and hit the sand with such force it fractured his #7 cervical vertebre and left him instantly paralyzed. He had to be air lifted to Mt Hope where numerous tests and surgeries have allowed him to at least sit up with a neck brace on for safety.
Since then with continious therapy, he has been able to regain use of his arms, in a limited way, and very slight feeling in his legs.
The cost of the therapy sessions add up quickly and it is quite an undertaking to get him into a car to take him, so we would like to raise money to at least cover the cost of a therapist visiting him at home and working with him to help him into a wheel chair and hopefully to WALK AGAIN.
Ayden, needs money to be able to pay for home vists from a therapist. Moving him into a car is a big exercise.
This is the main use of the money. He is young and the doctors are hoping as the swelling to his spinal cord reduces he will regain more and more use of his limbs.
Physical therapy is critical for his recovery.
