Cole Lewis, an inspiration to overcome challenges

Submitted By Fremont Unified Student Store (FUSS)

Cole Lewis is a senior at Mission San Jose High School who was severely injured in a car accident that took place on Friday, November 17, 2012 in Fremont. Cole, as well as his sister, Calyne, were passengers in the car. Even though Cole has lost mobility of his hands and feet and is confined to wheelchair right now, he is working hard for a full recovery and studying hard to graduate with his class in 2013. Cole aspires to continue his study at a local college with a major in psychology, counseling or sports therapy.

Circumstances in life can either make us or break us. Not only is Cole Lewis determined to fight to overcome his disabilities, he also wants to encourage others to face life's challenges with a thankful and positive attitude. This tragic accident is a reminder to all of us:
Don't drink and drive.
Turn any negative circumstance in life into something positive.
Everything happens for a reason. Don't be bitter, be thankful.
True friends will walk alongside you.

For Cole to have a chance to gain full mobility, he needs to go through SCI-FIT therapy (Spinal Cord Injury Functional Integrated Therapy) at a cost of $2,000 per month. We are asking for the community to support Cole by donating to:
