Dre is up and walking with the help of a prosthetic and attends physical and occupational therapist appointments regularly. His specialists are blown away by his positive attitude, which they believe is key to his recovery.
“Many of my physical therapists and my occupational therapists have said they’ve never see anybody heal like me,” he adds. “I did a mile two days ago and I did a mile again the other day. I went and got the proper shoe gear for my prosthetic and today, I was just walking up and down stairs.
“When people go to the GoFundMe page and look at that, yeah, it pulls a heartstring, but it also lets you know I’m going to give you the fight back. I don’t want to say what’s going to be, I want to show you. It’s just one step at a time.”
Dre says the hardest thing to give up is bread, an addiction he fights every day. Much like drugs and alcohol, food can have the same hold over a person, making it difficult to put it down.
“I’m addicted,” he admits. “I can’t stand it because when you grow up and you didn’t have anything … we used to make a bread and butter sandwich or a bread-on-bread sandwich we’d call a ‘hope’ sandwich — I got two pieces of bread and I’d hope I could get something to put in between it. It’s the monkey on my back. I let the cake go, I let the cupcakes go, I let the chocolate and Twinkies go. But if you get me a certain type of bagel at a certain time of the day and you get that real butter — oh my God [laughs].”
