Brant Beach, NJ

Jennifer was injured in a snowboarding accident in 2003. Another rider struck her from behind, and the resulting high-speed fall forced her neck and right shoulder in two different directions, ripping the roots of her C5 and C6 nerves from her spine and paralyzing several of the muscles in her upper arm and shoulder. In addition, her C7 nerve root was also stretched and she broke a vertebrae and her scapula.
