#TeamTrevor SCI C3-5
On 8/28/11, Trevor was involved in a single car accident in which he hit a large pine tree. He was airlifted to the nearest Trauma hospital in Daytona Beach where he underwent surgery to repair his broken neck at the C3-4-5 level. He was placed in a Halo and a plate was added to his spine that spans C4-6. His neck was stable but he had damaged his spinal cord leaving him a Quadriplegic.
Trevor had limited shoulder movement and slight movement in his left Bicep muscle and everything else was paralyzed. Not breathing on his own, Trevor was placed on a ventilator for almost a week. After stabilizing, he was transferred to Brooks Rehab Hospital in Jacksonville, the longest ride of his life, Trevor said.
Soon after arriving at Brooks Hospital, Trevor's temperature spiked and his oxygen levels began falling. Rushed to nearby Memorial Hospital, he was admitted with Pneumonia. He was placed back on the ventilator for another two weeks.
For the next 30 days, he worked at recovery at Brooks attending therapy sessions everyday until he was released to continue therapy at home in an outpatient setting. His halo was removed and he has begun his recovery journey.
Trevor currently attends recovery therapy at CORE, the Center for Recovery and Exercise in Orlando FL trying to regain his life.
Trevor says, " THIS IS A DAILY STRUGGLE AND A VERY EXPENSIVE ONE. I WILL CONTINUE MY QUEST FOR FREEDOM FROM THIS INJURY AND WILL NEVER GIVE UP!!! I WILL CONTINUE TO POST MY IMPROVEMENTS AND HOPE YOU WILL FOLLOW ME THROUGH THIS DIFFICULT JOURNEY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT. "
