Amber Richardson Story
I was involved in a freak accident July 25th 2011. I was racing a friend to see who could run faster. Although I won the race, I almost lost my life. When trying to slow to a stop, I tumbled forward and broke my neck. I was instantly paralyzed from the chest down. At 26 years old my whole life and the way I lived it was completely changed. I have been blessed with an opportunity to attend Project Walk/ Easter Seals in Austin. Therapy has been a God send for me and has given me back some of the strength lost as a result of my injury. It has allowed me some level of independence and normalcy in my life.
