Paging Jesse Nelson!! That was freaking amazing! I can't wait until the day where this is normal practice and we see guys / gals walk again after such a horrible accident. Had buddies over the years have this happen and they spend the rest of their life in a chair. To be able to cure them , if it can be done....I would want nothing more then to see them walk again.

Thanks for the clarification. If anyone deserves a chance at treatment, it would be Jesse. Met him and he is a grounded, level-headed young man even after his injury. Definitely on the top of my list as a racer and person.
