Alongside such a good sports player, in the University there is a great friend and an amazing man, who could do anything for his friends.
Now they’re trying to do the same for him, by raising enough money to get a wheelchair for this once-gamboling lacrosse star, formerly the captain of 15 intramural sports.
The accident took place last weekend. Lewis was hunting, he says when he suffered a seizure and fell from a tree stand.
Lewis’s mother says he’s only had two other seizures his entire life. He takes medication, she says, but doctors don’t know the seizures’ cause. Earlier this week, students held a prayer service the moment Lewis went into surgery. School officials say several hundred people showed up.
While talking FOX19 NOW, student Carly Fitz said, Lewis has a very positive attitude and he always takes the bad things in a good way and she believes that he will able to move on from this.
Lewis’s friends always motivate him against accidents and tell him to do what he loves and also make sure that they are money to buy a new all-terrain wheelchair for him. There is a wheelchair in their mind which cost up to $15,000.
The students have collected a fund of $30,000 total from their campus donations, said the college’s Student Government Association to the FOX19 NOW, Wednesday evening.
“There’s a video of him doing the ‘Git Up’ with his mom,” student Kelton Gray said, referring to a popular dance spawned by musician Blanco Brown. “I just want him to find that happiness again. Even if he’s doing the ‘Git Up’ from a wheelchair, he’s gonna have a good time. He’s that kind of spirit.”
