David Blanchard has been confined to a wheelchair for 20 years after a motorcycle accident. Five years ago, a brown recluse spider bit him and he was sent to hospital for treatment. There his lifeless legs were tested and it turned out the nerve function was good and the nerves were alive. He soon started walking with leg braces and a few weeks later was able to go for more that 150 feet using a walker. People have described Blanchard’s recovery as a miracle since he was only in his 20s when he became paraplegic and no one believed he would use his legs again. When his children saw him walk for the first time it was like their prayers have finally been answered.
