My son was in a single vehicle accident in Chesapeake, Va. His injuries were critical and life threatening. As a result of the injuries, he was hospitalized at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital from July through October. The accident left him a paraplegic.

On December 2, Marty entered a rehabilitation program at Wilson Workforce & Rehabilitation Center in Fishersville, Va. As a result of the outstanding care and services he received, coupled with his hard work, he returned home to Chesapeake in early January. In fact, he also returned to his former job, in a full-time capacity, as a lieutenant in the Chesapeake Sheriff’s Department. Marty’s rehabilitation counselor did an excellent job—he was helpful in every way—offering our entire family support and encouraging Marty through the long, arduous process of learning to live again.

Marty tells everyone that he owes his life to the WWRC. They taught him everything he needed to know to equip him to begin his new life. He has traveled back to Fishersville to visit and express his gratitude for all WWRC did for him. Through rehabilitation, people become independent and self-reliant, no longer having to depend on others for all their needs. This is indeed a priceless gift!
