Exactly one month after getting married, Stomper Cessca and her husbands' lives were changed forever after he was involved in an accident that left him permanently disabled.

Cessca shared with Stomp that she married her husband on Dec 21, 2019.

On Jan 21, 2020, he was involved in an accident with a car while riding his motorcycle at the junction of Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 and Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3.

Cessca said her husband was carrying out volunteer work when the accident occurred.

"He was going straight but the car from the opposite direction turned instead," she said.

"He was badly injured even though he was not speeding.

"If I sent you a photo of his bike, you might think he was gone.

"It was totally damaged."

It broke her heart to see her husband in critical condition in the hospital. She visited him every day from 9am to 12am as she was his main caregiver.

"Not a single person offered to help, I was all alone," she said.

"I had so much going through my head that I nearly thought of suicide because my husband was so helpless, like a newborn baby."

Cessca said her husband suffered fractures to his spine, ribcage and shoulder blade.

He also had a lung contusion and difficulties breathing.

Fortunately, things are looking up for the couple three months on.

Cessca shared a video she made to spread awareness and love.

Although her husband's right hand is permanently disabled, he can now move around.

"He can now walk, but not for long.

"He's way better than before although we are still struggling financially.

"I have overcome this trial by believing, hoping and praying.

"It isn't easy to go through all of this at 23 years old but we wake up, stand up, dress up and never give up."
