He Shoots… He Scores!

The very first thing I want to say is, THANK YOU! Team Never Quit & Froglogic have carried me through hell, and enabled me to get to a knee, and win my fight.. Just to let you know a little about myself, I am 40 years old, been married for 11 years, and have a 3 year old son that is on the autism spectrum. My son “Ray” is my hero. Besides the autism issues, he was also born with a tethered spinal cord. It required surgery on his spine to correct the problem. Ray has faced and overcome every issue that comes his way with a smile on his face, and a look in his eyes that just lets you know he loves life. I want to be the best version of myself for Ray and for my wife. I’ve been battling some horrid demons that nearly cost me everything I love, but through prayer, determination, and the guidance of men like you, I have my soul back, and I can breathe. In 2007 I had just joined my local fire department, and was on the path I dreamt of since childhood. Out of 155 candidates, the department accepted 12 of us…. I was winning. I was also playing hockey, and was coming off of a MVP & Championship season. I am not saying this to gloat at all, but to just paint the picture of my life being on track, and having a soaring confidence. Well in 2008, I had an accident, and suffered a traumatic brain injury. It was my 4th concussion, and it set my life on a path of depression, addiction, and no hope. Due to the injuries, I was out on several pain meds, and it ruined me. Before I knew it, the pain meds started to control my life. I isolated myself from all of my friends and family. I felt so low, and hated myself so much, that I didnt care if I died. I was never suicidal, but I faced life feeling like I deserved to suffer for all of the bad choices I made in life. I was at the bottom of the pit, and the evil one had my soul. THEN….. one night, I said my nightly prayers, then watched the movie Lone Survivor. Somewhere in my heart, a little fire sparked, and I felt myself getting to a knee, with the desire to win this war. I’ve been battling all of the demons (depression, addiction, pity) for years now, and it has been men like you, that inspired a little hope, one day at a time, and woke up my warrior spirit. The message that all of you spread to your fellow man…. my spark of regaining my confidence has become a raging fire! I am able to face my demons, give my son everything he needs, and let my wife know how much I love her, on a daily basis. For the first time in 10 years…. I am winning this war. I know its never over, but thanks to you, I’ve solidified the base of my heart and soul, I apologize for rambling, but I felt the need to reach out to you. Thank you for all you do, and God Bless! -Scott
