Back in November 2018, the challenge facing Jack Greener was nothing short of monumental.
Paralyzed from the neck down in a Jiu Jitsu accident, he’d suffered multiple strokes as a result of blood clots passing through his brain. After spending nine long hours under the surgeon’s knife to remove the remaining clots in his neck – reducing the chance of yet another stroke – he was given just two days in which to show improvement or he’d be offered assisted suicide. Miraculously though, his body started to respond.
“The best way to describe incomplete paralysis is like being stuck in an ice cube and you don’t know which part of your body is going to thaw out. Maybe one arm will or maybe a leg – it's basically complete luck. I got my left big toe back first. Then my fingers and part of my leg. And then I was able to stand.”
