I’m sharing a video of a friend from Project Walk. Natalie is one of the prettiest and nicest girls I’ve ever met. She was injured in a skiing accident 5 years ago at only 15 years old. Like Nick she is blessed with die hard support from her family and friends.
We watched this short video of her progress yesterday and I think it single-handedly lit a blazing fire under Nick’s ass. He’s been really struggling since his surgery 6 weeks ago and is making slow, painful progress. Such is life with a spinal cord injury. Watching Nat’s determination and fight put Nick’s current situation into clear perspective.
Get up and do everything you can, everyday, because even just one small step in the right direction will eventually lead you toward your goal.
Sucking every ounce of fun out of life before his big surgery.

To me, this video is a breath of fresh air. Most of my videos are about Nick’s recovery; this one is just us having fun! I think I laughed harder making it than I did living it. Enjoy!
I can’t get enough of these videos. If you have trouble viewing them on this page, click the links below and you’ll be taken straight to their YouTube pages.
This video is Nick’s “unveiling” to me what his breakthrough was at Project Walk today, followed by Bri’s animated explanation of how it happened. I love her!
I walked in during the last five minutes of his session and he surprised me with this. Apparently I only know three words. Take a guess what they are…
This video was his last lap of the day, he was getting a little tired, but still kicked major butt!
Nicks first attempt at walking hand-in-hand with Bree at Project Walk. She has slick reflexes and caught him when he tripped. ‘Atta girl!

Check out this short video featuring my incredible friend Micah Retz and the leading researchers looking for a cure for spinal cord injuries. Their progress is remarkable and worthy of attention and fundraising efforts.

This is a fun little video with a few (lots of!!!) pictures and videos collected over the last 7 years. So many friends, lots of family, tons of amazing memories.
Thank you Cassie for making this!
