When Tara was 16,she was paralyzed in a car accident. Coming out of a doctor’s appointment one morning, riding in the passenger seat of her Dad’s truck, they were T-boned at an intersection. The truck flipped and she had a lot of serious internal injuries. Some of my injuries were potentially fatal, such as a rupture of the thoracic aorta and collapsed lung.She also broke 7 bones in her neck and back, which caused a spinal cord injury at T11 and T12.
