From one day to another, Ricardo Rivera's life changed. The 26-year-old film student woke up the day after Thanksgiving 2010 to find out that he could not walk anymore. The next day, doctors diagnosed him with Transverse Myelitis, an inflammation of the substance inside the spinal cord.
Rivera, a deeply religious man, is full of hope despite his continuous health problems. He wants to walk again one day for him and for his mother, the only person supporting him at this time. His faith keeps him working really hard to achieve his goal, and as Lazarus in the Bible, he said, he is sure he will one day walk again.
