    That last part of the video where she is on the ramp, just broke my heart, since I know that it can happen to any of us.
    Best wishes to her, and I know that she will walk again. I am 100% sure just by looking at her.

    Really makes you value the simple things you do in life (like riding your bike) and the effect such an accident would have on it. I really have to give the girl credit for the drive she has to succeed in such a bad situation.

    Good luck Tara!

    You took the words right out of my mouth. All I could think watching this is WOW, How do you keep your spirits up like she is, I know If somehting like that happened to me, I am not sure I could keep gooing watching as my legs got smaller and smaller, knowing well that I would probably truly never walk or ride again.

    Glad to see she can move her legs in the water a little. That is really big in her recovery!!!!! That just shows that her nerves are firing and the other nerves around them will flow in time. My old room mate is going through the same thing after a car crash, but he still can't move his legs in the water.

    :clapping: to Tara for the hard work!!!!!
