IBOT PERSONAL MOBILITY DEVICE
Andrew Morrissey is a 2004 graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, earning his BA in Exercise and Sports Science.
He and his wife, Jennifer, are raising his stepdaughter, Taylor, and son, Drew. Andrew is a diehard sports fan, especially everything Tar Heels. His son, Drew, born in 2013, has joined Andrew in the fandom and watches all the games with his dad.
In August 2017, Andrew suffered a spinal cord injury at C5/C6 in a diving accident. Andrew lives with quadriplegia and works hard to be as independent as possible. The iBOT Personal Mobility Device will help Andrew do more with and for his family.
Andrew looks forward to getting back to more activity with his children, much like he did before the accident.
With the freedom the iBOT will provide, one of his goals is to coach his kid’s softball, soccer, basketball, and baseball teams. He is eager to play more with the kids, and coaching Drew’s basketball will be a dream come true. (We hear Drew is quite a little athlete!). It will be fantastic for Andrew to have the equipment to be more active with Drew while growing up. Being more mobile and eye-to-eye with his wife, family, and friends is a great bonus.
Andrew learned of American Mobility Project through his cousin, who served in the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment with AMP co-founder Gary Linfoot.
