Imagine this: You have just graduated from Southern Adventist University in Collegedale, Tenn., with a bachelor’s degree in social work in 2013. You are enrolled to start studies in the fall toward your master’s in social work. While bicycling with a friend, you crash, fracturing your cervical spine (C3/C4). Lying on the ground in pain, unable to move, life seems to be over.
Well, only if you give up. And Alex Buchanan is not giving up.
After stays in a regional trauma center in Chattanooga, Tenn., then a spinal rehab facility in Atlanta, Ga., Buchanan is now home in Portland, Ore., being supported by his family, friends, Sunnyside Church family and therapists at Adapt Therapy. Buchanan is intent on resuming his education after his rehab has made significant progress and is on his way, but it's a steep hill to climb.
Besides medical issues two primary challenges are: 1) the cost of therapy, and 2) the availability and cost of transportation. Buchanan’s parents, Carl and Rose Buchanan, found a used wheelchair-accessible van, but it was not going to be a long-term solution. Enter his Sunnyside Church family.
DSC Sports Memorabilia is partnering with Alex to help raise funds for the costs that are associated with his recovery.
