Less than ten years ago, Edwin Munoz was playing football for the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. Now, it's amazing that he can even walk.

On September 22nd, 2018 Munoz fractured his cervical spine, causing him to be paralyzed from the chest down after a dive into Lake Belton according to a report from KXXV-TV's Olivia Levada.

According to his GoFundMe page, Munoz's therapy at the Neurological Recovery Center (NRC) in Fort Worth and the Adaptive Training Foundation (ATF) in Carrollton has been funded in large part from donations mostly from friends and family in Central Texas.

A little over a year after multiple surgeries, Munoz has surpassed all expectations. The former kicker has regained movement in his arms and has even walked.

Now he wants to put his masters degree in exercise physiology to good work helping others in his situation.

His center in Fort Worth will focus more on treating traumatic brain injuries instead of spinal cord injuries. With continued therapy needed, Muroz has devised a plan to help himself and others at the same time.

He is asking for donations so he can purchase the therapy equipment himself to create his own facility here in Central Texas for other spinal cord injury patients.

$30,000 is the goal to get everything off the ground. It's a large number, so any amount donated is very much appreciated. Click here to read the full story and donate if you'd like.

Your donations will buy:
RT 300 leg therapy system
Galileo vibration plate
Zero G harnessing system
Therapy mats

More than that, it could bringing healing and hope to someone fighting to get back on their feet.
