Inspiring thousands with his story, meet Derek Herrea. November 24 2014
While exhibiting at the Bullet Proof Bio-hacker Conference in Pasadena California, we meet a young man named Derek Herrea, a recently (medically) retired Marine Special Operations Officer, who we would like to tip our hats off to.
Inspiring thousands with his story, he was paralyzed on June 14th 2012 while conducting combat operations in the Helmand Province, Afghanistan when he was shot in the spine while leading his team on patrol.
As the world saw on November 21, 2014. He was able to walk across a stage to receive a Bronze Star with combat "V" for his heroic actions that day. Something he and his doctors never thought possible.
AltoLab is truly honored to be part of his recovery regimen. We see his courage inspiring others to stand up and walk again!
