Not only did DeVaughn break multiple parts of his body and experience a traumatic brain injury, but within 24 hours of his accident he experienced a stroke in the right side of his brain.

Even through this devastating accident, DeVaughn is determined to be able to walk again and is ready to put in the work to get there.

One of his goals is to mow his own lawn again and eventually get back to working on cars.
