This past September, Austin caught a virus (Accute Flacaid Myelitis) that affected his spinal cord from T9 downward. He lost the ability to walk or move his legs.
When Austin got sick, I needed to take a leave of absence from my teaching job to care for him. Even with our struggles, I know we have been extremely blessed.
Austin is currently doing Locomotor Training, which is helping Austin learn to walk again. This Victory Scholarship will allow Austin to continue with this cutting-edge therapy.
Austin is hard working and very determined. He wakes up everyday without complaint, ready to face his busy schedule and not letting anything get him down!
