The story behind

Dear family & friends,

The aim of Wings for Life is to find a cure for spinal cord injury. Promoting advancement in spinal cord research is important to us and we would appreciate your help in achieving our fundraising goal.

We can all benefit from the progress made in research, because a spinal cord injury can happen to anyone of us. More than 2.5 years ago, Ben was diagnosed with a rare vascular tumor in his thoracic spine which required immediate major surgery. A few weeks into his rehabilitation and after making strong progress back to his feet, he suffered unexpected complications which resulted in T4 paralysis. We’ve come a long way since that time; however, Ben is still dependent on a wheelchair. Needless to say, we feel passionately about this cause as we have a firsthand understanding of the importance for spinal cord research.

We will be participating in the run in Sunrise, Florida together in May. Our goal is to celebrate our progress since that life-changing day and to unite with others around the world who hold the belief that we can make strong strides in medical research.

Thank you.
