Review for Hope for the Warriors, Springfield, VA, USA
Handcycling became as much an integral part of my recovery, as anything my doctors required of me. The activity that is handcycling took my recovery from the physical level to an emotional and spiritual level. When I retired from the Army and lost access to the adaptive equipment, it was like taking a step backwards; which sucks when taking a step forward isn’t easy to begin with. I was sitting at home backsliding into depression; I lost all my drive. Once I started riding again on the loaner bike from Hope For The Warriors I felt a sense of purpose. Now, knowing that I have my very own handcycle thanks to Hope For The Warriors, I won’t ever have to worry about the possibility of regressing. I have had a complete change of quality of life since getting to be back on three wheels.
