    from Seven Days Added 10 0 0

    8/25/15: When Jamie Perron of Jeffersonville was 19 years old, she was hit head on by another car and became a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the neck down. Now at age 33, Jamie is an artist and a co-captain of The Vermont Chargers Power Soccer Club. This summer Jamie learned to kayak with some help from Cathy Webster, her PT from The Rehab Gym and a specially outfitted kayak provided by the Northeast Disabled Athletic Association. She has a list of activities like zip lining, downhill skiing and dogsledding that she plans to accomplish. And Jamie's crossing them off, one by one. Eva met up with Jamie, her parents Jari and Mike, and Cathy in South Hero for a kayak trip on Lake Champlain. https://www.facebook.com/JamieArtWork https://www.facebook.com/vtchargers?pnref=lhc http://www.disabledathletics.org http://www.rehabgym.com Music: Francesca Blanchard, deux visions, "The Sea (Zach's Song)" & "Rame" http://www.francescablanchard.com This episode of Stuck in Vermont was made possible by Hotel Vermont and Vermont Tourism. http://bit.ly/hotelvermont http://bit.ly/vtvacation

              • Troy Memorial


                from James Wilhite Added 567 0 1

                My speech from my brother's Memorial: My brother and I were six years apart, so we always had an interesting relationship. We loved, and fought, like brothers frequently do—especially in my younger years. Fourteen years ago, Troy got into a car accident that left him quadriplegic. But, it isn’t the accident that stays burnt into my memory. What still stays with me, and haunts me, is our cars crossing each other on the same day of his accident. As we drove by, we flashed the sign for “I love you” out our windows. We’d just begun to grow closer. We’d just gotten to the ages where some of our interests were beginning to align. That relationship was stripped from us in an instant. I stayed at the hospital for the next two weeks while my brother was in the ICU. Then, on December 21st (my 18th birthday), I was sitting with Troy ready to open up the first birthday present that he’d ever purchased for me—he’d just bought it earlier that month. While I was with him I was talking to him, praying with him, and just sitting by his side. All of a sudden, he started blinking in response to what I was telling him. My brother woke up from his coma on my birthday. As Troy worked through his recovery in the following months, I had to go back and finish my senior year of high school. My parents and Jeff Smits stayed with him when I couldn’t. Optimism continued to rise for my parents as they saw Troy be able to breathe on his own, and they began to plan physical therapy treatments. Eventually, Troy came home from the hospital. It was an emotional time for me, and I’ll always remember the wheels of his chair rolling over the “Welcome Home” mat that we had at the front door. People came in and out to visit with Troy, and pray for him, but he stayed in a pretty dark place. Before his accident, he was a handsome, starting pitcher who was just about to finish college. The cliche, “His whole life was ahead of him” doesn’t seem to describe how much potential he had. Having all of that taken away over night was a tough pill for him to swallow. Going through some things that Troy had written, he had come to a turning point in 2009 where he decided that he wasn’t on the path that he was meant to be on. He began to pray for God to work within him and change him. I believe that God answered his prayer because about a year later, Troy began reaching out to me, and he began to post prayers and testimonials on his Facebook page. As his family, it was easy to convince ourselves that the Troy that we knew was gone after the accident. He wasn’t quite the same person that he was, he wasn’t able to do the same things, and in fact, the Troy that we had gotten to know and love for 24 years was no longer there. But in his place was this new soul that was more humble, more family oriented, and more grateful for every moment that he got to spend with those he loved. Unfortunately, this was a new Troy that I took for granted. I wasn’t there for him every day, every week, or even every month. Though, every time that I did show up, the joy on his face was unmistakable, the pride that he had in me was clear, and the love that he had for my wife and children was almost parallel to my own. 
When I was younger, I idolized my brother and sister. I wanted to listen to the same music, wear the same clothes, and drive the same cars that they did. Through my teenage years, I ended up having all of those things. But it still didn’t add up to what made them so special to me. Even looking at my brother’s pictures now, it is difficult to see him as someone who was once younger than I am now. I still see him as a role model, and I still feel like I’m not quite equal to what he was. When I was young, I tried really hard to get the attention of my siblings. I tried my best to be someone who they could appreciate. But, with the difference in age, it was difficult. Troy wrote to me eleven years after his accident and said, “I feel as though I wasted so many years, nearly 18 to be exact, by not taking advantage of having such a wonderful brother!! I regret every moment that I could of been spending with my ‘lil bro’.” Three years after that message was written, the tables have been turned. Now I look back at how much he wanted to spend time with me in his later years, and I was too busy with work, or with my family to come stay by his side. I missed an opportunity that I can never get back. This is something that I will carry with me for a while. But I am comforted in knowing that he will be waiting for me. One day, we will be like the brothers we should have always been. Brothers who didn’t cross paths at the wrong time. Brothers who can go into eternity and fight all that comes their way. We will be a force to be reckoned with.
