Julie Granger, Kathryn’s mother while speaking said that the rehab center has an impressive equipment to take care of her daughter Kathryn.
“We have 26 outlying counties in our surrounding area that I feel like would be able to benefit from something like this, The equipment that they have at this rehab is very impressive. They’ve got the robotic therapy, equipment, then they also have aquatic therapy, as well as neurological virtual reality, which is super helpful.” said Julie Granger
In the wake of the devastating situation surrounding the unforgettable incident,The Kathryn family raised funds enough that will help fund the development of a facility in the community, it will serve not only as an initial rehabilitation center but also address long-term needs.
“I feel like I would get a lot out of it if I had something closer, I would do it more often,” Kathryn said. “I can only go down there on the weekends, which isn’t that much time. There’s only three hours of actually working out. If I had it here, I could do it more often and make it a routine.”
If built, the center would help people with traumatic brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, Parkinson’s disease, stroke patients, Huntington’s disease, other neuropathic conditions and certain ALS patients.
Julie said she was inspired to help make everything happen after seeing the facility in Fort Worth. Right now, she is looking for a local hospital or orthopedic doctor to potentially partner with her.
“This place that we go to started out as a very small boutique. It was just passionate parents wanting to help their son,” Julie said. “It’s grown into something that’s helping so many young people, older people and everything in between. They’re helping my Kathryn. I just know, by getting something here locally, we’re going to be able to help a lot of people.”
Kristi Tucker, Sarah Tucker’s mom while describing her late daughter said she was a light full of life before the evil hands of death took hold of her, “She was a light. Full of life,” “There’s so much I could say about her. She was beautiful.” she continued to say
