Eric has had 20 operations, starting with the closure of his spinal chord when he was just 2 hours old. He is an eternal optimist and enjoys serving others, known for opening doors for them. Whenever he sees someone else in a wheelchair, he challenges them to race against his sporty wheelchair with custom-racing flames lining the seat, red wheels and lights.
