Matt's Story

Matt Brown was a 15 year old Norwood High School sophomore on January 23, 2010 when he was seriously injured in a varsity hockey game. Matt suffered fractures of the C4 and C5 vertebrae in his neck and sustained significant bruising of his spinal cord which left him paralyzed from the chest down. Prior to his injury Matt was a typically vibrant and active teenager, playing hockey, baseball, and golf. In that moment on January 23, 2010 life changed radically for Matt and his family.
