If you ever get down on yourself and think you have things rough, think about Ben. I can't believe the drive he has. Can you imagine doing this work without the help of your legs? What an inspiration he is to all of us.

All he needed was a lift - Mowing the lawn might seem like a burdensome summer chore, but for Ben Medley, it's a dream come true.

Medley, 25, owner of Medley's Lawn Care in Shelbyville, is paralyzed from the chest down. But this summer, he has been able to lift himself into and out of his customized Ford F-150 and use his riding lawn mowers without assistance.

"It's 110 times easier not just for me but for everyone who helpsme," Medley said.

Last month, Medley, who opened his business in 2003, received a customized truck and trailer from Superior Van and Mobility in Lexington with the help of the state Office of Vocational Rehabilitation.

Medley was paralyzed after an accident on July 3, 2005, his first wedding anniversary, with his wife Emmylou, 25. The pair were at Medley's parents' home for a get-together when he jumped into the swimming pool. His head hit the side of the pool, breaking two discs in his neck.
