Six years ago, he was decapitated internally after a car accident—his head was detached from his spine. Aside from having a broken jaw, a broken pelvis, as well as brain stem damage, he had to be placed in a medically induced coma.
Despite Joel’s condition, Lauren never stopped loving him. In fact, they tied the knot two years ago. They have been childhood sweethearts, and they intend to be until the end. On their wedding night, Lauren asked for just one thing: “I want you to dance with me,” she tells Joel.
Today, Joel was able to grant his wife’s wish. Held by a support, he was able to stand for the first time, holding Lauren in his hands—and dancing to Edwin McCain’s “I’ll be”. Their first dance was emotional, but they were visibly happy.
Lauren said: “If I were a crier, this is where I would have been a hot mess. I was just in awe. It was one of those moments that took my breath away. I couldn’t stop saying, ‘goodness, you are so tall’. I forgot how tall he was after all these years.”
