Lots of different I was paralyzed from the waist. Down or about a month was the scariest month my life. I was a fulltime dancer at the time. I thought my life is over as walking through pasta with my parents. One day i walked on the floor. And i remember the not walk. It was near fine. Was after you got a vaccine yet.

I said if he doesn't want me to walk again and if he has a plan from not the dance. So when i found out. Byu hawaii was going to be doing this.
