    Hi, I manufacture a product called a Cast Handle. We recently found out that most of our online sales are to paralyzed individuals.. I’m looking for “experts” like yourself to review the usefulness of our product from the perspective of a person confined to a wheelchair. I would like to send you a couple of free samples to evaluate. I even pay for the shipping. I would just like any feedback (Good or Bad) you might have. If you are interested please email me at jeff@casthandle . com

    Sorry to hear of your accident, but you seem to have great head on your shoulders. Life changes in the blink of an eye, I know from my own experience. Wishing you only the best health. Billy

    Kevin was sleeping in the back of the truck. He had no seatbelt on. So when they hit the patch of ice, he was flung from the car. A seatbelt would most likely have prevented the majority of his serious injuries. It certainly tells the importance of always wearing your seatbelt while in a car.

  11. RebelRay says:

    Just wondering. Was Kevin wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident? He didn’t say that he wasn’t wearing a seat belt, although the video text says that he didn’t.

    Thank you so much for your video Kevin you are an inspiration and I am so touched by your story

  16. sagher says:

    you are a true inspiration. keep up the good fight- you will walk one day. your amazing attitude will take you to the promise land.

    For what it’s worth, Kevin, if you have experienced some of the “stand-offishness” of “able-bodied” people since your accident and are looking for a way to interact with people in a way that presents no limitations based on physical mobility (or appearance, deafness, etc.) you should look into Second Life. It’s a virtual 3D world where people are represented by avatars. Many thousands of people worldwide inhabit this online virtual world and they are growing in number each day.

    You are AMAZING! a true hero in a world full of glorified fake ones 🙂

    I remember reading something a few weeks ago, seems like this wonderful young man must have heard it years ago, it was something like “no matter how bad a situation is, if you face it with a good attitude, it makes a world of difference” I hope he never loses his wonderful nature 🙂

  20. Elizabeth1763 says:

    It is amazing that he can do all these things himself. Kevin, be proud of yourself.

  21. upperboard says:

    I think Kevin is REALLY cute (& he’s kinda charming) grr! I’d help him in his chair n-eee dayyyy 🙂

  22. Tyler Bourns says:

    Yes he is, no feeling from the waist down
