help Dylan get back on the skis!

A big thank you to all of you! This is insane! We had set a cap at 50 000€ to be sure to reach this amount and get the collection! But it is not enough to cover all the needs of my rehabilitation, so don't hesitate to give and carry this project with me!

Hello, my name is Dylan Florit, I am from Les Deux Alpes/La Grave, I am 21 years old, I am a professional skier in the freeride/freestyle world.

On August 14th I was the victim of a serious car accident.

When I wake up, I learn that I am incomplete quadriplegic, which means that I have lost the mobility of my body except for my right arm and some sensations in my left arm.

After spending two months at the intensive care unit of the Grenoble University Hospital, I returned to the rehabilitation centre at the beginning of October 2018. It is then the beginning of a long fight !

Day after day I struggle to regain mobility, to give back movement to my daily life, and to regain sensations.

Today, I am appealing to you because I need your solidarity more than ever to fight the greatest battle of my life: to be able to get back on skis one day!

Allocation of funds

The course is very long and the events are numerous. Such rehabilitation has a considerable cost and that is why I appeal to your solidarity to help me finance the operations and equipment I will need.

The amount that will be required to recover is difficult to quantify precisely because the costs are so unpredictable. The cost of operations can vary greatly from one patient to another because each situation is different and the rehabilitation time can vary. However, I can give you an overview of the planned expenses:

Since this autumn in Lausanne, Switzerland, a new study called STIMO (Stimulation Movement Overground) has led to very encouraging results. Researchers have succeeded in getting paraplegic patients to walk again using electrostimulation. For the moment, my condition does not allow me to benefit from this operation, but in a few months I will be in a chronic phase (1 year and a half to 2 years after the accident) so doctors will be able to analyze my case. If I am an eligible patient, I want to be able to fund it quickly. Taking into account the surgical procedure and rehabilitation support, the amount amounts to several tens of thousands of euros.

In the event that this operation is not possible, there are other interventions that would allow me to recover some motor skills in my hands.

To allow me to acquire a maximum of autonomy, I will also need adapted equipment and the following list is not exhaustive:

- an electric wheelchair for travel in the city and in everyday life. Cost: 15 000€

- an all-terrain tracked wheelchair for mountain travel.  Cost: 30 000€

- a specialized vehicle equipped for people with reduced mobility. Cost: 90 000€

The amount indicated on this collection is for information only and will certainly not be enough to cover all my needs, so do not hesitate to help me even if the amount indicated seems to have been reached.
