This site was created as a venue where people can reach out and help support Joey Gregory in his recovery of a traumatic spinal chord injury

The family and friends of Joey Gregory are in deep despair at the result of a life altering accident to Joey Gregory. His spinal chord was severely injured on Sunday October 14th. During a motorcycle dirt bike practice, Joey was tragically thrown into the side of a wall breaking 2 vertebrae and damaging his spinal chord. Before the emergency surgery was preformed, the doctors gave him a 5% chance of ever walking again. Thankfully the chord was not completely severed and they were able to unbend it within 4 hours by putting 2 steel rods in his spine with 11 screws and a bone graph from his right hip. The doctors wont know the extent of damage or true outcome for 6 months, while he is in the body brace, even if he gains feeling or movement.

Joey is only 16 years old. He is a kind hearted, good natured, hard working young man. He has the strength of character that can defy the odds. His future is uncertain but with the love, prayers and support of his family, friends, and community we believe he will overcome this enormous obstacle and have a quality life. We are beyond grateful he is still with us....

I sit here feeling helpless, hoping and praying for the best. I imagine that many people feel the same way and want to help but don't know how. I created this site where people can donate towards Joey's long and painful road to recovery and show their support.

With deep gratitude,

Joey's Aunt Samantha
