Norton, paralyzed from football, tells crowd there is hope
While Chris Norton was being flown in a helicopter after suffering a severe spinal cord injury in football, he believed he was going to die.
“I was worried about my breathing,” Norton said Wednesday night to a crowd gathered in the Student Resource Center on the main campus of Iowa Central Community College.
Nearly eight years after Chris Norton was left paralyzed in a college football accident, he wed the woman of his dreams in a charming Southern ceremony where the pair were surrounded by tearful loved ones and friends.
“Our mission is to promote the long term health, wellness, recovery, and quality of life for individuals with spinal cord injury and other neurological disorders by providing additional funds to facilitate opportunities that would not otherwise exist”
Chris Norton was injured in a football game on October 16, 2010 and was given a 3% chance of ever regaining any movement below his neck. However, with his faith and determination he is regaining movement throughout his body.
