"Imagine flying through the air, crunching into the earth and then gasping for breath. Suffering an agonising wait for the ambulance, trying to remain calm. Desperately hoping that the damage is not as severe as it feels. Hearing the words spinal cord injury. Being told you may never walk again. Feeling your identity shatter inside you."
