The back story: I was born Tonell Jenkins in the summer of August 1980. I had a normal childhood. I was nerdy, adventurous, jokey & full of life which carried over into my adulthood. On May 24th, 1999 (18 y/o) I fractured my neck in a car accident. Then December 28th, 2002 (22 y/o), I was involved in another car accident of which I sustained a repeated neck fracture, but this time I was rendered a C 4-7 quadriplegic, and was left paralyzed from the neck down with only speaking abilities. Since then I’ve experienced a house fire (lost everything 2009), accidentally drove off a wheelchair lift 4ft in the air, fracturing my forehead and breaking both legs in two places (tibia & fibula 2013). Through all that, I still remained positive and kept pressing forward.
