Anybody can be effected by bad Health. Think your too young? Think again! I was just 20 when the doctors discovered a tumor in my brainstem. Refusing to give up, I am setting out to ride my recumbent trike, cross country.
" You're never going to move youre arm again." ; " You are not going to live longer than six months." ; "You are to much of an insurance risk and we will not operate on you at this hospital." ; " You will not graduate college." ; " You can never hold a full time job." ; " You'll never be able to live on your own." ; "Your to mentally unstable to work here!" Ever since my failed brain-stem surgery, there has been a ton of negativity regarding what I can and can not do, and I am proud to say, I have succeeded at most all my challenges. Now, I want to test my limits? I am planning a recumbent bike ride from Santa Monica, Ca to Newport News, Va to prove once and for all, that " I CAN!" I can do anything I put my mind to. Origonally, my family was nervous about my goal, but once my Doctor told me that health wise, I should be fine and with some medical companions, that I should be fine, they supported me. 2 trainers, my father, and myself will now fly to California. Rent an RV and ride the 2566.22 miles back across America. We hope to park the RV in Walmart parking lots and travel through North Carolina to thank (Dr, Freidman the inventor of Temedor.)
