Never in my wildest dreams did I expect my 14 year son to become a paraplegic. Who could prepare for that? In a moment our lives were turned upside down. As a mom I had so many fears…will we get him healthy again, will he adapt to this new life, will he be left behind by friends and mostly how am I as his mother going to get him upright and walking again. I spent so much time doing my homework, educating myself on medical research, I thought the answer would be stem cell therapy. But over the past 10 years we haven’t seen much promise there, we’ve been through so many disappointments. So we redirected our efforts into technology.
