There have been incredible advances in recent technology and science that allow people to do things that they never would have been able to do before. We can give people entire limbs backs, or restore the ability to use arms and legs that were grievously damaged. One woman defied the odds when she walked down the aisle at her wedding after being told she would never walk again. Her story shows that sometimes with hard work, scientific advancements and a lot of love the insurmountable can be overcome.

When our bride Jaquie was young, she dove into a pool and gravely injured herself; she broke her neck. It left her immediately paralyzed from the neck down and doctors told her that she would never take another step and would be wheelchair bound for the remainder of her days. For nearly ten years, she’s relied on her wheelchair for mobility.

Life Goes On

But Jaquie didn’t let her disability keep her down and life went on for her. She met a man named Andy that she decided she wanted to spend the rest of her life with, and they were set to be married. But she wanted to give Andy, and herself, a tremendous gift; she wanted to walk down the aisle at her wedding.
