My Hand Project

As a youngster, I was involved in an accident that destroyed the muscle development on the right side of my body.

On the fateful day, my father, uncles and I were in the field harvesting the season's cotton. Working away, no one spotted the the remnants of a tree that had fallen into the crop. As we drove over, the cotton harvester tipped and fell on top of me.

As a result, a major nerve in my right shoulder has been severely pinched and prevents natural growth. The physical damage is the most visible, but the emotional struggles have been the greatest challenge.

I designed and built an attachment that improved the functionality to my right hand. I am no longer working on this project, but learn more about my story →
