Back in June, Paul Rodriguez suffered a devastating injury that left him with a torn ACL, MCL, and meniscus. Down but not out, Paul began his road to recovery—which he is being documenting through a YouTube series shot and edited by Allen Hannon. In Episode 2, a now walking and driving P-Rod takes us through the lead-up to his surgery. Along the way, he meets Joshua and his father Carlos.
Joshua was diagnosed with brain cancer three years ago, and has been battling it ever since. His story inspired Paul to do a special shirt through Primitive and donate the proceeds to the charity of Carlos’s choice. P-Rod is also using his platform to promote the NEGU challenge in honor of childhood cancer awareness month.
This episode is inspirational on many levels, and certainly worth your time. For more the back story behind Paul’s injury, you can view Episode 1 of “Road to Recovery” below.
