This is Pierre Coacy who will be turning 60 later this year. Pierre fell out of a tree when he was 14 and broke his back. He is paralyzed from the waist down, is single with no family. Pierre used to drag himself wherever he went until a foreigner taught him to walk using a walker like the one above. He is articulate with a great sense of humor and has a positive attitude. He asked for a wheelchair which we do not have at this time. We'll be looking around among our contacts to see if we can't find one. Hard to have any self-pity parties after meeting Pierre.
