Story Teaser

Victor was playing soccer when he was caught in the crossfire of a nearby robbery and was shot in the back. He was paralyzed from the waist down and would not walk again. His life changed that day but his spirit, faith and positive attitude were strong. He came to our clinic to replace his old, broken wheelchair. Dr. Mike Noel examined him with translation assistance from Josue Trevino. Crystal Rempfer, our occupational therapist, fitted him for a new wheelchair.
