Raise Money to Help Quadriplegic Get Breakthrough Treatment
Transitioning from a life with full mobility to being almost completely immobile is extremely difficult. Unfortunately many people have to over come this battle, though it seems impossible at times staying hopeful can make all the difference. Thanks to the advancement of modern medicine and breakthroughs in treatments, patients have a chance of regaining their mobility.
Estevan experienced a tragic accident on September 3, 2011 while visiting the Grand Canyon. Estevan was a great friend to many people who while on a labor day get away ended up careening off of the highway and rolling down a hill. Once paramedics started treatment on a seemingly fatal skull fracture that extended from one ear to another they realized that Estevan had no feeling in his body. They eventually found out that he had sustained a severe spinal injury leaving him unable to eat, sit, stand, talk or even breathe on his own. After a long year of fighting for his life Estevan has tried all of the traditional therapies for rehabilitation, and has had no success at all.
Recently Estevan has discovered a new type of treatment from NextStep Fitness. The therapists at NextStep have been able to help some of they patients to regain control of various extremities. They use a procedure called Locomotor training, functional electrical stimulation, and adoptive activity. The originator of NextStep has experienced a high percentage of breakthrough and gives Estevan hope that he can to. Although every recovery and injury are different, Estevan wants to give it one last try.
Unlike traditional treatments, this one is not covered by his insurance policy. To help his good friends have started a free online fundraiser to help him raise the money for his treatment. Their goal is to raise $16,500, and they are racing towards their goal.
