REECE WALLAN

In December 2010 life as I knew it changed forever.  One day I was a very active 24 year old, riding motor bikes, playing football, fishing and camping, and the next I was a C5/C6 quadriplegic unable to do the things I loved in life.  I spent 6 weeks in Intensive Care on a ventilator unable to even breath for myself or move anything below my neck. All up I spent 6 months in hospital trying to regain any function possible.  Doctors told me I’d be using a Power Chair for the rest of my life and never be able to look after myself in any way.  While in hospital I heard about an intensive training program called “Walk On” which was based off another highly regarded intensive training program in America called “Project Walk”. 

Since doing Walk On I am now using a manual chair and have gained enough strength to transfer in and out of my chair and a car with minimal assistance.  I have also made the trip to America to attend Project Walk where I gained more strength and motivation, and I’m planning on going back to America in the near future. 

 After more than 3 and a half years I’m still getting stronger and making progress towards regaining more independence and possibly to at least being able to stand one day. https://m.facebook.com/thereecewallenappeal
