Anthony Nicosia -
TBI; June 1st, 2009
 

Highlights: All the staff/physicians were instrumental in preparing me for my returning to my home.

Journey since discharge: I continue to exercise dog walking/training and reading.

Anything you would like to share: I encourage any patient suffering from traumatic brain injury to keep hope that your injury can continue to improve stay engaged and continue to keep positive!

Charles (Chuck) McAvoy -
T4 SCI; 3/6/1983 to 5/13/1983
 

Highlights: Many great stories - too many to list Dr. Wilmont, Dr. Thompson, PT Vanesia, Nurse Rescino and others I cannot remember the names.

Journey since discharge: I'm retired from 29 years with Pacific Bell/SBC/AT&T then another 10 years with Kaiser Permanente as an infrastructure engineer. I now devote my time to metal sculpture vintage motorcycle restoration and playing with my granddaughter.

Anything you would like to share: SCVM provided a good basis for my future years with an SCI. I was fairly well prepared to live an independent life. I have never had a pressure sore and just a few UTI's in 33 years.
