Dustin’s life changed when he was in a car accident August 2010 and sustained major spinal cord damage, a broken upper arm, collapsed lungs, broken ribs, cracked sternum & mild brain injury. 

Dustin has a T-5 complete spinal cord injury (SCI) which means he has no feeling below his mid-chest. He was told he would never move below his waist again but after being part of a SCI research project at the University of Kentucky in Louisville he is able to move his legs and stand.

Through his adversity, he was able to find a silver lining, in which he is striving to help not only bring awareness to spinal cord injuries, but to motivate the lives of people who have been through traumatic events. 

He does motivational speaking and raises money for spinal cord research and helps to improve lives for people in wheelchairs through the Dustin Shillcox Foundation.
Right now Dustin spends his days keeping in shape, staying active and enjoying life as much as he can. He is working with the stimulator not only to improve his life but to provide the best information to the research so that this will soon be a procedure that everyone can have and together they all can work on their goal witch is to walk again. 

He is giving speeches, raising money for the foundation, and living life to the absolute fullest!
