The November issue features a lengthy piece that details my injury, my recovery, the struggles my family and I went through to find long-term care, and what we are building at NeuroHope.
This is an article that was more than a year in the making. We first reached out to the magazine’s editor, Megan Fernandez, in the summer of 2014. At the time, we had just launched our initial crowdfunding campaign. The magazine was not able to cover the story, but Megan kept us in mind, and we reconnected this summer.
I met with the author, Jeff Vrabel, multiple times. He visited NeuroHope twice, we had lunch once, and we spent a lot of time on the phone during the writing process. It was humbling to see Jeff’s passion to tell my story. He was focused on learning as much as he could about the complex topics of neurologic recovery and the insurance industry. His effort shows. He captures the message eloquently in the article.
This article is about more than my journey back from paralysis. Jeff covered the bases. He took the time to speak with our staff and clients, the founder of Neuroworx, leaders from IU Health, the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana, and Senator Patricia Miller, who authored an Indiana law that passed this year to help fund recovery programs.
