foward. They have athlets that help everyone in need and help

message: It is not as much as it is who. Eric LeGrand inspires
me. He is a football player for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.On
October 16, 2010, LeGrand suffered a severe spinal injury during
a game against the Army Black Knights in New Meadowlands Stadium.
The 6'2", 275 lbs. defensive tackle attempted to tackle Malcolm
Brown of the opposing team. They collided, and LeGrand lay on the
ground for several minutes before being carted off, apparently
only able to move his head. He was taken to the intensive care
unit of the Hackensack University Medical Center, in Hackensack,
New Jersey, where doctors determined that LeGrand was paralyzed
from the neck down. About two weeks later he was transferred to
Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, one of the nation's leaders
in spinal cord rehabilitation. On January 6, 2011, Rutgers
announced that LeGrand had regained movement in his shoulders and
sensation throughout his body. In July 2011, LeGrand tweeted
photos of himself standing upright and announced that he was
steadily regaining movement in his arms. the fact that he was
able to move again is inspireing. [From ipl2: Much of this
