Hey Peeps!

My name is Socky and I am a quadriplegic C2 C3. I was injured in 2009 and began treatment at Kennedy Krieger Institute in 2012. During my time here, I came off of the ventilator and had the trach removed from my neck. I have also gained movement from my shoulders to my elbows. My next goal is to get my hands moving to gain a greater sense of independence. Kennedy Krieger motivated me to further my abilities. My motto is, “I will get better or die trying.”
