Monica's Story

Monica Caban became an Ironman on Nov. 5, 2011 after completing the Panama City, FL, course in 14:02:48. Her two kids were the biggest fans as she crossed the finish. Her legs were a bit tight, but her body felt great and she was ready to do it again.

Soon her sights were on 2012 Ironman Arizona.

But four weeks before the event, on the routine Boerne Loop training ride with a fellow cyclist, an 82-year-old woman driving a pick-up truck hit her from behind. Monica suffered a severe spinal cord injury and lost use of her legs.

Since that tragic incident in October, Monica has focused on getting healthy, with physical therapy as her new training regimen.

And every time, she gets a little better.

But she was out of work when the accident happened, and with no income since, the medical bills are adding up. To help, friends from the swimming, cycling, and now running, communities are raising funds to offset some of her rehabilitation expenses.

Monica also plans to start the Now You See Me Foundation that will help children who suffer spinal cord injuries, and athletes injured during training. In the meantime, she wants to remind drivers that cyclists are sharing the road, and she wants all athletes to "be as bright as you can be out there!"

Thank you for your participation and support.
