“Another year come and gone!
I cannot put into words how grateful I am for you, Dr. Sekhon, and the whole team in Reno who took care of me.
Since I last saw you in Reno, I have moved to Hawaii with my girlfriend. I am actively surfing, biking, diving, hiking, and doing all of the things I love on a daily basis due to you and your team.
Today is always a humbling day for me to reflect on how lucky I am.
One day in the future I plan on starting a non profit for spinal cord injury victims. I am still unclear on my full mission but, I have something burning inside me to help others. I started to volunteer with https://www.accessurf.org/ as often as I can, and while they don’t specialize in spinal cord injuries they help empower people with disabilities through accessible beach and water programs. I am hoping to create something like this so I can put smiles on peoples faces daily.
Again, thank you SO much for being complete badasses and taking care of me. You truly gave me a second chance at life and I don’t plan on wasting it. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
If you or any of your team are ever in Hawaii give me a shout! I’d be more than happy to play tour guide or give a few good recommendations.”
