When Andrew arrived he told us about the long road ahead. He suffered extensive nerve damage which primarily affected his hands, “The pain is constant. I’d say on a scale of 1-10, the pain in my fingers is a constant 5. But nerves do heal. I’ll find out next week how much feeling I can expect to recover. I’m a very, very lucky person.”
His girlfriend of 3 1/2 years, Lauren, has been nothing short of a rockstar. Andrew said she’s not only helping him with his daily tasks but is also scrolling through theCHIVE for him every night.
We gave them both a first-look at the next big CHIVE CHARITIES campaign – a young boy who really needs our help. More on that soon.
