KALEB DICKERSON

Location: Tennessee, USA

Date Of Injury: August 14, 2013

On the day of August 14, 2013 my life changed forever. I was at work. I’m a lineman an was working in the bucket truck an a insulator broke down causing electricity to track to the steel pole. Once it made contact it cause a very hot very nasty flash. I was caught in it. Luckily I was knocked out while my shirt was on fire. I was sedated for a couple weeks doctors not knowing for sure if I was goin to make it or not. But with the good Lords help I pulled through. 14 weeks in the hospital.

It’s now been almost 3 years, hours of therapy, lots of pain an 17 surgeries later I’m typing this. There has been so many obstacles in between I’ve wanted to give up so many times. But that is not the answer.

You have to keep pressing forward an working hard. I’m still facing countless more surgeries but I always thank my doctor an my God for saving my life. This was just a short version would take to long to type my whole story. Would love to help someone if I can.
