My son, Jason, was severely injured in an automobile accident that left him in a coma for five weeks; he was minimally conscious for another month. While in rehab, Jason struggled to learn how to walk, talk, and eat again. Though he still struggles with his balance and his cognitive skills, he has come so far.
It amazes me to think how he went from the verge of independence: graduating from college... To total dependence...To a young man determined to find his old "self." He is my inspiration for life.
