Jesse Whitmire was driving in his truck alone when he lost control and crashed. The accident left him paralyzed from the chest down and lucky to be alive. Jesse suffered from a shattered C3 vertebrae, broken C4, C5, and C6 vertebrae, and a cut in his spinal cord. He spent several weeks hospitalized in Fort Walton Beach, Florida before moving to the Shepard Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The Shepard Center specializes in medical treatment, research, and rehabilitation for people with spinal cord injury, brain injury, and other neuromuscular conditions. Jesse is making improvements each day, he can currently move one of his arms, but he has a long road ahead of him. Sandestin Foundation for Kids hoped to make the financial journey a little easier by making a donation to Jesse and his family.
