There are miracles happening every day at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, a catastrophic care hospital and spinal cord and brain injury rehabilitation clinic. It’s one of the most amazing hospitals I’ve ever seen. I’ll never forget the first time I went to Shepherd Center for a story, bracing myself for depressing scenes that I was sure were taking place as patients learned to cope with their injuries, emotionally and physically. Boy, was I surprised.
Patients were wheeling by in their chairs, but they were certainly not depressed, at least not the patients I saw that day. Their chairs were decked out with flags and cool wheels. Pimped out wheelchairs. Way cool.
Even cooler is this FlashMob the Shepherd Center organized recently. It just goes to show how amazing the facility, its physical therapists, doctors and other staff members are.
Pretty awesome, right?
