Meet warrior, Cedric. Cedric was a US Navy Airman until he suffered a severe back injury on duty leaving him in a wheelchair. With time and hard work, Cedric learned to walk again, but the injury resulted in degenerative back disease. Cedric now manages chronic pain from bulging discs in his lower back which has gradually affected his thoracic spine and neck. From childhood to his time in the Navy, Cedric was taught like most men that to show pain is to show weakness. Tune in as Cedric shares his remarkable story and how he battles his daily pain as well as the stigmas associated with being a man in chronic pain.
