How I've Compromised as a Christian YouTuberSupport our videos!Patreon (thank you!):...
To ride a Harley Davidson across the United States was Chris and Denise Arthey’s lifelong dream, and now, with children grown up and a new work posting to Texas, it seemed finally within reach.
But only a few hours down the road, on an arrow-straight stretch of Highway 35, devastation struck. A drunk driver veered across the carriageway and their motorcycle was involved in a head-on collision. Tossed ‘like raggedy dolls’ in the air, both lost their left leg above the knee, and Chris suffered serious head injuries, but their survival was remarkable.
Even more remarkable is the story of their recovery. As Chris and Denise learned to cope with pain and a new reality, they simply refused to become physically held back, or to be frozen in anger and regret.
They have gone on to lead extraordinarily full lives: Chris returning to full time work and taking another overseas posting to the Middle East before building a new career in the prosthetics industry, and taking in Everest Base Camp, Mount Kilimanjaro, a number of marathons and a master’s degree along the way.
