Michael Olsen  | Waterville, NY

At just 23 years old in 2007, was working constructing on what seemed to be a normal day. While framing an exterior wall when he stepped on a stud that sent him front flipping down the stairwell. He fell 8 feet and landed on his back, suffering a complete spinal cord injury.
