Extreme Makeover Home Edition will air this Friday at 8:00 pm. This particular episode will be a 2 hour special, and will feature Dan Cummings ’99. Dan is a founder of Journey Forward, an organization dedicated to bettering the lives of people who have suffered spinal cord injury through intense exercise.
The episode will feature a family in Pennsylvania whose son broke his neck three years ago. Dan serves as a consultant on the project and inspiration to what is possible after suffering a spinal cord injury. Dan himself was told he would never walk again after a swimming accident in 2000. After years of hard work and rehab, Dan was able to walk a mile last October (just 10 years after being diagnosed a c-6 Quadriplegic).
