Rock n Roll! Guitar Medley

I gave geetar playing a second try tonight  since being injured 11 years ago and boy was it fun! I kinda have to figure everything out right on the spot and by ear since I don’t have a guitar of my own to practice on at home.

Tonight I got to try a Mesa Boogie: Dual Rectifier, for the first time. It sounded great! I’m looking forward to getting my own rig soon! Aloha, Damon

Advancing Disabled Health Care Nationwide

I had an amazing interview via teleconference with United Healthcare this morning. It was high tech, there was a handler/mediator, and two separate writers for individual health related media outlets all online. We consulted on transitioning with disability and securing independence, as well as contributing to society. We’re gonna help a lot of people across the nation.. Aloha

I was covered by 3 News Stations in one Night!

I was covered by four news channels this week; KHON, KFVE, KHNL, and KGMB. Three stations aired footage of my OVER THE EDGE rappel last night. This was for a Special Olympics Hawaii fundraiser I participated in.

The view was breath taking… I saw turtles swimming.. I blew kisses to the cheering crowd below. I was very inspired by all who participated! Anything is possible..

 

Media personality Jennifer Robbin’s shared this link with me. Please enjoy!

OVER THE EDGE 2013

I got to rappel 31 stories down Sheraton Waikiki to help fundraise for Special Olympics Hawaii. It was a phenomenal success thanks to the amazing support team at OVER THE EDGE. I came down the skyscraper in my signature Damon Boiser wheelchair made by MOGO wheelchairs of Australia.

MOGO was amazing and hand delivered my Extreme Sport chair equipped with a free floating rear axle and 4 link suspension. This chair is built for skydiving and the other extreme sports I do. They also brought me a signature every day chair.

The rappel was wonderful and the view was amazing. I saw lots of turtles on the way down. as I neared the ground I could hear the crowd cheering and I flipped over and blew kisses down to them.

I am the first quadriplegic to do something like this in Hawaii. GoPro footage coming soon! Anything is possible… Aloha
