    Mr. Gerry Story Continues ….

    A small tagline


    Gerry, an amputee, had not walked in several years. The Department of Rehabilitative Services offers retraining programs that match skills and abilities so that people can work and live more productive lives. Gerry excitedly reported that he had contacted them. They measured and fitted him for prosthetic leg, which he received on April 28th. Two days later he took his first ten-minute walk. Gerry expressed his gratitude for the referral and his new lease on life.
