Today marks 4 years since the bike accident that broke my neck, shoulder blade, face, amongst other bones. Each year I'm eternally grateful for surviving with only some minor shoulder discomfort, I'm lucky. According to my doctors, it could have been much worse.
Please take a minute and read about Edie @edperk , a fellow cyclist I was just getting to know before she was hit by a car in April, and like me, survived thanks to her strength, but is paralyzed from the chest down.
Edie's an amazing person.. moved to LA from out east, great athlete, smart, fiercely independent, loved by many, lots of friends, killer smile... sound like anyone you know?
So if you're glad I'm still around 4 years later, please honor me by reading Edie's story, and helping her out. It could have been me. It could be any of us.. pedestrian, cyclist, or driver.
