Chris BosharParalyzed man says he chooses to have more good days than bad

NORTH ANDOVER — The past two years has been a tough road for Chris Boshar.

He was paralyzed below his shoulders and confined to a wheelchair when he suffered a spinal cord injury after a diving accident on Lake Winnisquam in New Hampshire on July 2, 2011.

“Everything is a hard part; the loss of independence; the cognitive and physical disability, and the fact that I can’t feel the touch of my loved ones,” he said.

Yet Boshar, who will turn 27 on June 18, refuses to give up and is resolute that he will one day walk again.
