I'm a CHAMPION

My life completely changed at 21

My name is Samantha, I'm 21 years old and I have Cauda Equina Syndrome which is a spinal cord injury. I never thought a few weeks after I turned 21 my life would change from how I knew it. I went in for a normal procedure called a blood patch... two days later I lost feeling from the belly button down. The blood patch went terribly wrong and ended up having a chemical reaction with my spinal cord nerves. Now they are under extreme pressure and very inflamed. I have nerve damage in my bowels and bladder and my strength is at an all time low! I'm currently relearning how to walk! Even through all of this craziness, I haven't given up! I keep a huge smile on my face and I fight through the pain. This hasn't brought me down or changed my attitude. I know I will beat this and one day be able to run and walk again! I absolutely can not wait to get back in the gym every day. I am a champion!

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. Link your text to anything, including an external website or a different page. You can set your text box to expand and collapse when people click, so they can read more or less info.
