What would you do if you became paralyzed from the waist down? I’m embarrassed to say… I don’t know. Would I curl up in a ball and pout? Would I be so angry I would refuse all help and end up like one of those wackos on the street who yell none sense at a passerby? Or would I end up like Grant Korgan?

Grant was a professional snowmobiler who over shot a jump by 2 feet back in 2010… 5 months after marrying his soulmate, Shawna. While he laid in his hospital bed he promised her he wouldn’t stop fighting until he could waltz with her once again. And in those two years, he’s gone to the South Pole on a sit ski, he’s back kayaking on the river and flying his plane. And just last week, while my station cameras rolled, he walked for the first time with just the help of Shawna’s hand. He lives his life believing “possibility through positivity.” God, please don’t ever let me lose the use of my legs, but if you do, please give me the strength to handle it like Grant Korgan
