One fateful evening, when Edgard John Augustin was 4 years old, his mother lost control of the car while driving on the highway. “I remember waking up to my mother’s horrified screams,” he recalls. “There was blood everywhere, and, from the knees down, both of my legs were gone. My older brother, who was sitting next to me in the backseat, was also missing one of his legs.” The injuries were caused by a piece of railing boring through the rear window.
By the time they were taken to the hospital, both boys had lost a lot of blood. “We’re really lucky to have made it out alive,” continues Edgard, now 30. “And while our mother only suffered a few broken fingers, the accident has had the longest-lasting impact on her. To this day, she feels like it’s her fault that both of her sons are handicapped. It weighs heavily on her soul.”
