Life can change in the blink of an eye. In a heartbeat. We all know this but don’t expect it to happen. Not really. One minute things are customary and safe, the days filled with the familiar pattern of life, and suddenly nothing is ever the same again.
Tommy Van Zandt’s life changed on February 7, 2009. Trimming tree limbs on his property after a huge Northwest Arkansas ice storm, he fell from a ladder and suffered a severe neck injury which left him paralyzed from the shoulders down. In that one moment, his world was altered.
He is an amazing spirit and still very much involved in the day-to-day activities of his company. But his daily struggles are significant, his journey difficult.
