That’s a Great Haircut!

Rochester, Minnesota – WEBWIRE

Joe wants to inspire others through his experiences.

On June 29, 1992, Joe Oppold reported to the United States Military Academy at West Point in New York, knowing that he was going to have his head shaved. They did it quickly—zip, zip, zip. Four years later, he graduated in the top 5 percent of his class from the US Military Academy and was on his way to medical school. He felt he was on top of the world. Two weeks later, while on leave at his home in Waterloo, Iowa, he experienced the worst migraine one could ever imagine. The medical staff shaved his head before the sixteen-hour surgery. That was his second great haircut and signaled the beginning of the greatest challenge of his life.
The aneurysm burst during surgery had left his entire right side paralyzed. His arm, leg, and even his vocal cords on that side of his body became useless. Day after day, week after week, over and over again, he did what he could to improve.
Now twenty years later, Joe has a beautiful wife and a family of four. He talks, drives, bikes, skis, travels, and takes care of his kids and the household. He has worked as a funeral director and has a part-time job. Drawing on the determination he learned at West Point, the strength from his family, the support of his friends, and on God—Joe forged head.
The comeback was more rigorous, challenging, and full of low points than one could imagine. The realization that he was paralyzed, the slow progress of his recovery, and his newly diminished expectations for the life ahead were incredibly challenging. Now, Joe wants to inspire others through his experiences.
