Review for Gridiron Heroes Spinal Cord Injury Organization, Schertz, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

In 2009 my son broke his neck, c5, playing in a high school football game, he was 16. We were devastated and at a complete loss. While sitting in the Intensive Care Unit with him one evening I received a phone call from Eddie Canales of the Gridiron Heroes. He was reaching out to me to ask how we were doing, to see if there was anything he could do to help, and to guide me on this tough journey we had ahead of us, I never could gotten through it without Eddie and Chris’s help. Not only did Eddie help me with the necessary things I needed to do to help take care of my son, he was comforting and always there when I just needed to talk or needed a shoulder to cry on. When it got too hard on me to keep lifting Cody into my suv, Eddie and Chris were there donating a beautiful van to us which has made our lives as a family 100% better. We are able to come and go easier and travel. Eddie and Chris have become a mentors to me, they are always willing to help out when needed, and what they do to help others in the same situation is truly a blessing and it makes our lives much easier in this devastating and life changing situation.
