"I've had a few cases in my career that emotionally put me through the wringer and this is one of them," Bamberg said. "It hurts to have a young man who is in his late 20s tell you they would rather be dead because he can't move anything below his neck."

"Over time, his spirit revitalized and his spirit was rebuilt. Now he says, 'I'm a survivor, I can beat this.' He learned how to use this chair and he realized that he's blessed because he still gets to talk to his loved ones and visit his friends," he added.

Bamberg said the settlement happened in May, but Heyward wanted to keep it private out of fear for his safety. Now, he hopes to let his story be an inspiration to others.

"We didn't say anything; we were mindful that what kick-started this whole thing was foolish people trying to break in to steal from him," Bamberg said. "We didn't want to put out how much money he got just in case someone tried to target his house again."
