Part 3 – Stop Falls Before They Happen….
Why should you listen to a 30-something spring chicken?
I have a mom, just 67 years young, who has taken multiple falls that drastically changed the course of her life.
A couple of years ago we were at a party on a beautiful summer evening. My mom had survived breast cancer, a hole in her colon that turned septic inside her body and almost took her life, and two 9-hour surgeries that saved her life.
We were having a great time at the party, enjoying drinks and tasty appetizers, meeting new people with my parents. We were laughing, catching up, and having a great time…even though we didn’t know that many people.
The party was moving over to a different part of the house for live music and dancing so we made our way through the house. There was an indoor pool that had a cover on it, but one small problem…the cover of the pool and the walkway around it was the exact same color. A matter of fact, when we walked into the house you had to really look hard to understand what you were looking at.
My mom was chatting away in front of my next to my wife and took one step off the pathway and onto the cover of the pool. She slid down on her shoulder and hit her head on the edge of the pool.
It was terrifying, not only for her but for us too.
We managed to get her off of the pool cover and she wasn’t all with it. I was trying to keep her awake and asking her questions until the ambulance got there.
She definitely perked right up when the young firemen got there!
But in all seriousness she ended up fracturing her shoulder. She was too high risk for another surgery so she had to let it heal naturally.
Fast forward two years and it turns out she has to have neck surgery as well because of so many falls something caused there to be fractured pieces in her neck.
It will have been her 6th surgery in four years (I may have lost count).
My dad has become a full time nurse for her. It has completely uprooted and changed the dynamics of our family and what she is able to do with us.
She had to re-learn how to walk. She has worn a neck brace for almost a year now.
I created this program because I don’t want this to happen to you OR your family.
It changed everything.
And if I couldn’t help my mom through all this as much as I wanted to, I was going to make darn sure that I helped as many people as I could not go through the same struggles as my mom and our family has.
She’s my inspiration to help people just like you continue to live your life to the fullest with the quality of life you desire.
My mom has been dedicated to regaining her strength and has locked in on a healthy diet for the past 8 months and is improving every single day. It’s a true blessing.
That’s why I am holding this live FREE seminar on Saturday September 24th at Noon to show you exactly how to achieve better balance, so that you and your family don’t have to go through the same things we did.
