On wednesday the 10th of April Lucy and I got engaged.

After 8 1/2 adventurous years Filled with plenty of highs and lows I eventually asked the most amazing girl to marry  me.I am so lucky to have someone so special in my life and cant wait to spend the rest of my life with her.

we are both so stoked and can’t wait to celebrate with everyone!

Beau Vernon

On June 23rd 2012 my life changed forever. A normal incident in a normal game of Aussie rules football left me with C5-C6 quadriplegia. In an instant I went from a 23 year old who never sat still, to spending 8 months in hospital and looking at the prospect of spending my life in a wheelchair. Before the incident I played any sport and would be up for any outdoor activity and even quit a commerce degree at the thought of sitting down to work all day. Things have definitely changed for me. Until recently, my family and I had no idea about spinal cord injuries. This is why I want to share my experiences of living with a spinal cord injury and the difficulties that come with it. The support I have received from family, friends and even people I haven't met has been unbelievable, I just want to show you all what you have helped me achieve and that I'm going to live a normal and happy life, even if it is in a chair.
