MEET SEAN CULP
We are blessed to meet interesting people all over the world that are making a difference. And these are the moments that we celebrate our differences and understand that we come in all colors, shapes, sizes, and abilities.
Sean Culp, 39, an Engineer is a perfect example of someone that is using all his abilities to make a huge difference in the world.
His life changed after he suffered a motorcycle accident on April 10, 2008 and after that one fateful night, to say he is lucky to be alive is an understatement.
He woke up three months after the accident and thought that it was the next day. Two weeks after, his body was affected by MRSA, He underwent approximately 30 surgeries, his right leg ended up being amputated, his right arm broken in 3 locations - now a 6-inch titanium rod with 9 screws, broken pelvis and ribs, and his elbow still cant be bend due to bone growth forming between the bones- and these are some of the injuries which prompted the doctors to make a tough choice between his life and his leg.
For a person who has sustained numerous grievous injuries, Sean would not have survived but for his sheer will power and courage, he propelled to take bold steps to live an active lifestyle while he had already fulfilled his dream to be an Engineer and create almost anything.
Sports is part of my routine. Sports it keeps me out of trouble, off pain meds, and happy. I am currently training to make team USA in Para Cycling. Doing the sports and keeping a strong mind and body allows me to live a happy, pain-free life. I love cycling and it really makes me really happy.
It is his passion and zest for life that has helped him to overcome any challenges, the amazing courage and spirit to live. A guy who was born with a charisma that makes you want to cheer for him in all his endeavors in life. His optimistic attitude will continue to serve as an inspiration to others.
“Life is short. It can be taken away from you in the blink of the eye. Live life to the fullest and live every day like it is your last day. You may not wake up one day.” –Sean Culp.
