In this episode of Come Rain or Shine, author Michael Kiel joins the show to discuss his journey from rehab patient to a rehab specialist detailed in his book, Challenge the Moment.
A gunshot survivor, Michael recalls the time his neck took a bullet in college resulting in a complete C3-C4 spinal cord injury. Faced with the prospect of quadriplegia, Michael recalls the mental crossroads. Would he succumb to fear or stay positive considering the diagnosis?
Having chosen the latter, Michael unpacks the recovery process, finishing his degree, and helping young adults with disabilities learn career skills as they heal.
With his memoir, Challenge the Moment, recently published in 2019, Michael hopes his story will inspire rehabbers to embrace their dreams despite pain and suffering. With original words of hope, Michael’s charge is simple: Just because you stay the course, doesn’t mean the next level of overcoming is unobtainable.
