When it comes to delivering the finest medical supplies to those in need, we are always researching and staying up to date on the latest news and advancements in the field. One story that we recently came across really struck a chord with us. According to the Villanovan, former Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand was recently presented with the 2015 O.S.A Humanitarian Award for his sense of community and consistently high spirits in the face of struggle.
Here’s a little backstory: A little over four years ago, LeGrand fractured his C3 and C4 vertebras in a collision that caused paralysis from the neck down. Doctors were of the opinion that he would never able to walk again, but he has refused to let that keep him down. As a spokesperson for people with disabilities, he has maintained a sense of gratitude, faith, and humor throughout the entire process, helping others with handicaps feel less alone and altogether optimistic about their futures.
On the first day of surgery, LeGrand turned to his mother and told her “I’ll be back”, and it’s clear that this phrase has embodied his approach to life post-accident and helped cement his hope that the future still holds big things for him and others with similar injuries. The entire Rainbow Medical team is in awe of this young man’s courageous attitude and will continue to follow his journey and progress with nothing but the highest hopes for his recovery.
