Shannon Berrios from Ohio currently living in St Petersburg also making progress on her journey with our NextStep Orlando Angels. Her story:

On July 23rd, 2015 my life changed in a blink of any eye. I finished working and stopped at a local gas station in Cleveland, Ohio. As soon as I got out of my truck I heard gun shots from a drive by shooting, I fell to the ground not knowing I had been hit with one of the bullets. As I lay on the ground within seconds I felt a sensation go down my body & my lung filling up with blood causing me to have a hard time breathing. A few minutes later an ambulance arrived & the last thing I remembered was begging them not to let me die, that I have 2 children. Days later I was awaken & told that I was going into surgery. Maybe a week or so I woke up in ICU on a ventilator, I was told that I am paralyzed. After spending a month in ICU I was transferred to a spinal cord injury rehabilitation center to learn how to live sitting in wheelchair. I was told my injury level is T8 Asia A and that I would never walk again. April 2016 I decided to leave the nursing home in Cleveland & move to Florida for physical therapy. I have now gained movement back in my legs and just started practicing walking. I am now told by Cleveland Clinic that I will walk again, my injury is incomplete and I just need to aggressively strengthen my legs to support my body to walk again. My brain signals connect with my entire body now. I am working very hard with my physical therapy & I know I will walk again.

Friends of Clay County Animals group are providing volunteers, love, and medical support to all animals in the area
