Amazing!

Three months after a paralyzing spinal injury, the Buffalo tight end is making big strides thanks to aggressive medical care, his indomitable will -- and a gutty call by his surgeon.

I remember watching as that happened, and paying attention over the next few days. That he not only survived but is walking unassisted just a few months later is miraculous. We've come such a long way since Christopher Reeve suffered a similar injury just twelve years ago. I think he and Dana would be pleased to see what their energy has helped to bring about.
