A year after arriving in Colorado, Trevor dislocated his spine in an accident in the backcountry, paralyzing him from the waist down. He explains how, from that point on until now, whatever challenges he faces and whenever someone tells him, “No”, he’s going to prove them wrong and I for one believe him.
