Hey Frankie,

I've loved listening to you guys even back when you were 94.9! I've been wanting to get in touch with you for awhile. Almost 1 year ago I was involved in an accident at the Sand Dunes that left me paralyzed from the chest down. I broke my neck and back and was told I was lucky to be alive and would probably not walk again. I've never accepted that and will never stop fighting.

The reason I've been wanting to get in touch is because I've always found your show to be funny, positive, lighthearted among other things and that is exactly what I am. I am, along with some other people in my situation, starting to go to schools, detention centers and hospitals to speak with teens and adults to hopefully send a positive message to them. I would love to come onto the show one morning and talk about my accident and the importance of ATV safety. As well as Neuroworx, my physical therapy facility and the assemblies/public speaking.

It's all kind of a good time now because Neuroworx is all non-profit and they are going to be building an amazing new facility starting in September. Also, the school year is just beginning so getting the word out to school administrators that might be listening would be awesome too.

To learn more about me, I've included a link to my blog that I stated after the accident. I don't have Facebook (weird, I know) so it was the perfect way to keep everyone updated. Also, I've included Neuroworx website and Facebook page.
