AFTER the accident the first thing I wanted to do was tell everybody I was going to walk again.
Just days after Christmas in 2014, I fell off the balcony of my Sydney northern beaches home. Our lives turned upside down in an instant.
With my wife Jo by my side, I was rushed to Royal North Shore Hospital where it was confirmed that I had suffered a broken neck and crushed spinal cord as a result of the fall.
I suddenly became a C4 incomplete quadriplegic — a condition that left me with limited use of my legs and left arm, and paralysis of my right arm.
