"Oh Damn.. it is a herniated disc"...I still remember the words of the Doc as I lay on the MRI machine about 25 years ago.. I was told I could forget about sports and wouldn't even be running any more. I was devastated as sports had always been my life...
Luckily for me, over the course of about 12-15 months, I could recover and have kept a rather active lifestyle. But my brush with a serious back injury made me realize what someone with a spinal injury must be going through.. the utter helplessness and misery coupled with the complete change of lifestyle.. And to think that a cure for SCI is possible if only we keep working on it..
This is the cause I support and I will be running with the rest of the world on the 5th of May at 4.30 PM in Mumbai..
Please support me in raising funds for this noble cause !!
