Breakthrough motivates teen


May 6, 2018 by admin

KELLYVILLE’S Lincolne Innis believes in miracles.

On January 31 he was at the beach at Hawks Nest with friends when he dived into the surf and hit a sandbank. He broke two vertebrae and is now a quadriplegic.

Now the inspirational teen will mobilise hundreds in the Marching for Miracles fund-raising walk at Parramatta Park on September 1.

After six months at the Royal Rehabilitation Centre at Ryde, undergoing intensive occupational and physiotherapy, Lincolne’s family’s spirits were lifted recently when his triceps muscle “popped up”.

“I was doing really well but had a surgery setback so now I’m just working on my strength and getting the use of more muscles,” Lincolne said. “[My triceps] just popped up one day — I guess it shows if you work hard on it, you’ll be able to do more.”

The use of his triceps means Lincolne can reach out to pick up a drink or food and transfer himself in and out of a bed or chair.

His father, Grant Innis, said his son was incredibly positive and showed enormous strength throughout the challenges in his everyday life.

Do they believe in miracles? “We sort of got one with his triceps a few weeks ago, and there’s a big window for miracles over the next 18 months — really anything could happen, including being able to walk again,” Mr Innis said.

“If it doesn’t happen we’ll find a way to make the most of what he’s got and make a good life.”

And Lincolne: “Yeah, anything can happen.”
