    I didn't realize how jacked up he got and came back. This gives me hope:

    Great idea. I'll NEVER forget the therapist that got my thumb to move when I was coming out of paralysis.

    Thanks @Baldhead_J this is inspirational and a positive take on a difficult subject. Those who have suffered serious injury also understand some things that are only hinted at in this story. Not much is said about the personal struggle and mental drain that happens behind closed doors, or the physical challenges faced on a daily basis, or the effect on family, or about coming to terms with those things that are different, sometimes permanently.
    Strength of character will get you part way but everyone has their limits; having good people around is actually what gets you over the line.
    The thing I took from this clip is that injuries do not define who we are, interacting with others does that.

    Agreed. I've been humbled by how amazing people have been to me.
