Miracles are possible. Just ask Cardiff resident Celia Brewer.

It was Feb. 1, 2010 when her son, Spencer Fox, crashed while snowboarding at Brighton, Utah.

“Spencer was faster than I was and went down a cat track,” said Brewer, who works as Carlsbad’s city attorney. “He hit a bump and went straight over the snow bank. I skied down and said, ‘Spencer, Spencer. What hurts?’ He said, ‘Nothing, I can’t feel anything.’”

Later at University Hospital in Salt Lake City, Brewer and her son were told he may never walk again.
