Grant Korgan had fantasized about one certain jump for four years. He went for it but overshot it by two feet. He broke his back. He sustained a serious spinal cord injury. Was told he would never move his legs against gravity again. Five months before the crash, Grant had married his soulmate, Shawna. She promised together they would get through this. "I held his face and said 'we're going to get through this with everything we ever wanted to do in life. We're going to run, we're going to play. We're going to dance. We're going to climb' and I've never thought anything different."

They've done everything from acupuncture to neuropalates to physical therapy at Spine Nevada. And while our cameras rolled, Grant walked for the first time without a cane, just barely holding Shawna's hand. They've trained 8 hours a day, 7 days a week to regain feeling from his hips to his knees. "And I'm not stopping until my toes twinkle at full force."

Grant truly believes the crash happened for a reason. And he's using his new journey in life to teach all of us possibilities through positivity. He's written a book. He does speaking engagements. He even traveled all the way to the South Pole to drive home his message. "To give the world an idea that regardless of ability or perceived disability we can all come to the awareness that we can achieve every desire in the life."

Grant will be speaking at The Chamber's Healthcare Forum on October 3rd.  For more information go to http://data.thechambernv.org/events/eventdetail.aspx?EventID=195
