Cambry Kaylor

Hi, my name is Cambry Kaylor. I'm nineteen years old and attending school at BYU. A little over a year ago in the summer of 2005 I was in a horse accident. I broke my back at T-11, 12 and completely severed my spinal cord. LIke many spinal cord injuries, the doctor told me that walking was no longer a part of my future. My life would not consist of the activities I once enjoyed such as horse vaulting and dance, but would instead be spent in a wheelchair. After only a few weeks out of the hospital I started school where I met some of the warriors from Leighton's gym. I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw them upright and walking with braces and canes. I knew I had to be a part of the program and was soon after evaluated by Leighton. Since then I've learned how to crawl, walk on my knees, and I am currently now walking with braces. The path has not been easy, but well worth it. The hardest things you do in life often seem to be the greatest things you do. With this program, what was once a glimpse of hope has turned into a reality.
