In December 2014, Frank went over the handlebars of his mountain bike leaving him with a chance fracture of his T5/6 vertebrae. Following surgery and acute rehabilitation, Frank was initially diagnosed as Asia A with complete loss of sensory and motor function. Through hard work and tireless efforts, Frank has since progressed to an Asia C regaining some sensory and motor function in his lower extremities.
Through five intensive days/week of locomotor training at Next Step Fitness in Lawndale, CA, Frank plans to continue his recovery, and eventually ride his bike and snowboard once again.
