However, the support of his wife, children, and the rock climbing community helped him realize he must continue to fight, and push himself to keep going. To the surprise of his doctors Sunny has made a miraculous recovery, and has been able to walk and climb since 2017. Since then he has competed in the USA Climbing Paraclimbing National Championships every year, and won first place in 2021.
Now, Sunny is set to defend his championship, but to him, that is irrelevant. Instead his focus is on providing a good example for his children, enjoying their time together, and cherishing every moment he can watch them grow.
