In 2011,18-yr old Chris O'Brien noticed a friend far out in the surf. He thought he’d swim out to make sure he was okay. But as he dove into the surf Chris hit a shallow sand bar. He broke his c4 and c5 vertebrae. Instantly, Chris was paralyzed. His medical bills were over $20,000 a week for several months and insurance no longer covers the costs. On June 9, a family friend held an outdoor benefit called “Music in the Grass” with performances from local young musicians. 100% of all donations went toward Chris’ rehabilitation.
You can help Chris walk again!
