Jeff Andrews suffered a C6 burst fracture with associated spinal cord injury and transverse process fractures at the L1, L2, and L3 levels, resulting in quadriplegia at the C5/6 level in a snowboarding accident that occurred at Sugar Bowl Resort in Norden, CA on March 15, 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 2014 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. In 2017 Jeff won his division at the USA National Championship for Surfing.
