In June 2007, James suddently faced a catastrophic road cycling accident.

The accident rendered James an incomplete quadriplegic with an uncertain prognosis of what, if any, lost function he might regain.

But he willed his way back in a decade long journey, and sharing his story and insights with us.

His story is personal, unfiltered and in places vulnerable.

Interlaced in the story are many insights, reflections and learning’s that others facing life’s adversities may draw hope, inspiration and guidance.

Of significance is the remarkable recovery he has made in the last 7 years, well beyond what modern medicine believed was a typical recovery outcome.
