The name Adam Langlais would not be familiar to most people in paintball- including me. He is a friend of a good friend of mine in paintball. And my good friend Khaine from Team Incarate in Japan asked me to help publicise the auction to help Adam get better.
Adam is one of us - a baller. He played at the World Cup Asia with Team Ku from Japan so some of you might have seen him around. Adam recently suffered a stroke which basically paralysed his whole body- he cannot move nor talk and can only blink and move his eyes.
Put yourselves in his situation- one moment you're running and gunning on the paintball field and the next you're totally trapped in your own body and you can't move at all. The next time you walk out on the field, spare a thought for Adam and be grateful that you are lucky to be able to play.
Please go to this thread on PbNation to find out more about Adam and and how his life has been changed by the stroke. Please do what you can to help Adam out- he is a fellow baller after all. Bid in the auction, donate some money or just say something nice.
