The Story

It has been an arduous 18 months since I began my journey back from the dead. The unwavering support of my family and friends has been humbling to say the least, and from where I stand now I can clearly see our efforts have not been in vain, but this is not to say that the year ahead will be any less trying than the last. 

I am re-upping this fundraiser in hopes of buying a mechanical walker that I can use to stand and walk at home, and make better use of my days that I can't make it to the gym.

Aloha friends, family, and supporters!

Graham left O'ahu on Tuesday, March 19th for Miami, Florida. The flights on commercial airliners were smooth and there were no major issues. Graham is set up at his mother and stepfather's beautiful home and will be continuing his physical therapy there at a Spinal Rehabilitation Center. He also will be continuing on with acupuncture, massage and hyperbaric chamber treatments. His recovery plan also includes help from his martial arts trainer for the next couple of months. Graham is the doing the hard work he needs to do now and we know he is up for the task at hand. We are so proud of his progress so far and know he will keep amazing us all!!

Thank you so much for your continued support and well wishes.

From Graham himself. Posted to his facebook page this past Saturday, 3/2/2013:

"Hello life long loves and allied acquaintances, here is a new status for you to comment on. Words won't do to describe how greatful I am to have such an amazing group of people at my back during the greatest struggle of my life. Your offerings of money have put me miles closer to affording the care and treatment I need, and more importantly the love and support each of you sends feels less like a collection of letters and more like one big life raft. As some may know, my fingers and toes wiggle on my right side, and my upper body is slowly getting stronger. This is all good news, but the best news of all Is that as I wiggle my way out of this wheelchair, I have the motivation of one day walking up to each of you awesome kindred spirits and hugging the shit out of you. Literally. Lets heal together, and never once take ourselves for granted."

Graham moved his right thumb and index finger! Graham says he looks at his fingers and tells them to move sometimes and in the past, nothing happened. Today he did it and they actually moved! He was still moving them when we left! Today was a free day, no formal PT although he and Lawrence went to the PT room and did some anyway. We are so happy with this new improvement and can't wait to see what he does next! An awesome display!
