There will be obstacles. There will be doubters. There will be mistakes. But with hard work, there are no limits.

Congratulations #HighFivesAthlete Jeff Andews for being the High Fives Athlete of the week! Your hard work does not go unnoticed. Jeff had the opportunity to join Alejandra Monsalve’s NKP revolutionary training course in the CR Johnson Healing Center this past week.

“It’s amazing that she (Alejandra) has figured out the human body and it’s neuro pathways in a fashion that promotes new movement in such a short period of time. I went into the Healing Center not knowing what to expect, and now I can’t wait to get back on that Pilates machine to see what else we can get firing!”  – Jeff Andrews

Jeff suffered a C6 burst fracture with associated spinal cord injury and transverse process fractures at L1,L2, L3, resulting in quadriplegia at the C5-C7 level in a snowboarding accident that occurred at Sugar Bowl on March 15 of 2014. Jeff’s goal is to become as independent as his condition will permit and return to the most active lifestyle possible. Jeff is currently adjusting to the adversity with an infectious smile and positive attitude.

In April Jeff received a Board approved grant for $1,363.41 to be used toward Massage and Acupuncture at Craig Hospital (Englewood, CO) and a 6 month supply of healing supplements – all items not covered by his insurance carrier.

Following his discharge Jeff and his family had been traveling back and forth from Santa Rosa to the Sacramento spinal cord injury training facility SCI-FIT 2 times a week work on his recovery. In August Jeff received a Board approved grant to be used toward a 50-pack of training at SCI-FIT to keep progressing in his recovery and to work toward becoming more independent.

High Five Jeff!
