Most of us know the tragic story of Jeramiah Gouin, the Sapello teen who was left paralyzed from the chest down after a May 31 accident at a bull-riding camp in Maxwell. A bull stepped on him, crushing all but one of the eight vertebrae in his neck.
Jeramiah, who turned 18 on Sunday, spent nearly four months in hospitals after the accident and finally returned home this past Sunday.
In anticipation of his homecoming, local contractor Travis Regensberg undertook a $65,000 remodel of Jeramiah’s home. And he’s doing it with donated labor and materials.
