Anything Is Possible

The Horrible News

Hi there! My name is Nicole, I'm from Puerto Rico and on April 6, 2013 my life changed completely. I was a very healthy 22 year old, I was a student of Chemical Engineering and had two jobs, but one morning I started feeling a LOT of pain on my neck and my arms began to numb. I went to the hospital and in less than six hours I was completely paralyzed from my neck down. I was diagnosed with Transverse Mielitis. The doctors told my mom that I had only 5% chance of living and if I stayed alive I was going to stay practically a vegetable.

God Had Other Plans

I was in intensive care for about two months, connected to a ventilator and not being able to move or talk. Doctors kept telling my mom that there was no chance of me surviving, but one day I started moving one of my fingers and then one of my legs and suddenly there was hope. I was hospitalized for seven months. After that I went to a Rehabilitation Hospital where they helped me immensely. I started moving more, talking and being more and more independent. Nowadays I'm able to walk with a walker and do pretty much anything by myself. I'm still in physical therapy, but I believe that I can get even better. The importance in our situation is to stay positive, believe in yourself and never lose faith in God.

Collapsible text is perfect for longer content like paragraphs and descriptions. It’s a great way to give people more information while keeping your layout clean.
