Getting the dreadful news that their child has been in a serious car crash is likely most parents' worst nightmare. When that accident has resulted in the victim suffering a spinal cord injury, those fears understandably escalate, as they wonder if their loved one will ever recover. There are likely some Massachusetts families who have had to endure this terrible ordeal.
Few injuries are more devastating than those that leave victims paralyzed. Medicine -- up until now -- has not been able to find a cure for those patients who have suffered a spinal cord injury. However, if new research continues to show results, then some patients in Massachusetts may one day walk again.
Millions of people have dreams of things they want to accomplish. Some succeed without any trouble and others never see their dream realized. There are some who persevere against challenging obstacles and see their dreams to fruition. One dad who suffered a devastating spinal cord injury not only succeeded, but he inspired his son as well. Victims of back injuries everywhere, including Massachusetts, may also be encouraged by the man's feats.
