Walker was an average teenage boy who enjoyed life and playing football. Early one morning this all changed when his home was hit by a tornado with him and his family inside. Walker sustained injuries to his spinal cord, currently leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. Walker’s life has drastically changed but he has taken it all in stride. He knows his plans for life have changed but he has never complained. He understands that he has to make the best of his “new” life. Because of the way Walker is coping with his hospitalization and spinal cord injury, we believe he is truly a Hero that deserves to be recognized.
