Cole Lewis was a senior at Mission San Jose High School (MSJHS) when he got severely injured in a car accident that took place when the 2012 Thanksgiving break just started. Cole and his sister were passengers in the car. Even though Cole lost mobility of his hands and feet and is confined to wheelchair, he is working hard to gain full recovery.
When FUSS first heard about Cole Lewis’ accident from MSJHS administrators, FUSS decided to step up to help, not only Cole Lewis, but all FUSD students who suffer extremely serious and devastating tragedies in life.
In the process of helping Cole Lewis, not only has FUSS worked with DDTV, VIFE, Tricity Voice, Fremont Bulletin, and many school community members to raise money for his physical therapies, but also has shared important lessons learned from Cole:
1. When tragedies happen, they can either make us or break us. Cole Lewis has chosen the former by fighting to overcome his disabilities.
2. Don’t be bitter, but be thankful.
3. Make right choices.
4. True friends will walk alongside you.
