let me start by bringing you back about 7 months ago when i lost my grandfather due to a heart attack and he was in the hospital in critical care for about 4 or 5 days until there was nothing else they could do. losing him was one of the hardest things i have ever had to overcome due to the fact that it was my first loved one i have lost which was both a blessing and a curse. after i lost my grandfather i started getting back into mma watching it and trying to get back into the actual sport boxing and kick boxing it really helped me get my mind off of his death and how it was hurting not only me but my whole family. after going to my grandfather funeral in naples my parents were going to his second viewing up north because they were snow birds and lived half the year in Philadelphia. we were on the way to the airport at 5 am to drop my mom and dad off to catch their flight up north for the second viewing. i was asleep in the back seat when a drunk driver going 90mph slams into the back of our car with me absorbing most of the hit lucky my father sped the car up and we didn't go spinning into highway traffic. the drunk driver then sped off into the early morning traffic which could have only been 4 or 5 cars at the time. i ended up suffering 3 herniated disks in my neck 3 herniated disks in my lower back with one in my mid back as well as tearing of my bicep and right shoulder. i have been in a great deal of pain since the crash. my goal is to go to my dream even and watch the first ever mma fight in madison square garden in new york city and see a once in a lifetime event.
