Following a car accident, Rebekah didn’t know what her future would look like. She had multiple fractures, a spinal cord injury, and other injuries that have changed her life. However, she’s faced each day with determination to work hard on her self-care, exercises and walking during therapy. We're proud to share that Rebekah was able to walk with only minimal assistance using a walker for the first time since the accident, and we expect more progress to come!
