SHREWSBURY, N.J., May 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — In August 2012, Andrew Brown was on his way home from seeing his young son in the hospital for a surgical procedure when his life was forever changed. Brown was involved in an automobile accident, leaving him paralyzed from the neck down.

Subsequently, he had enormous difficulty breathing, often requiring mechanical ventilation, which put him in the hospital every month last year.
