After Micah's accident, he was unable to communicate verbally. His Care Coordinator worked closely with Micah's mother to advocate for him so he could continue receiving the therapy he needed to recover.
That advocacy led Micah to a Skilled Nursing Facility upon discharge. As he got stronger, Micah was able to apply for a grant through the Warm Springs Foundation that allowed him to receive more intensive treatment at Warm Springs Hospital. Within a few days of his admission, his Care Coordinator was in awe as she heard Micah's voice for the very first time and even got to watch him eat a tuna fish sandwich.
Micah continued to work hard and was then eligible for the Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services program, which meant he could continue receiving therapy, this time at NeuroRestorative. His mom excitedly called his Care Coordinator to report that not only was he now able to walk around their home independently, but he was also climbing up the stairs and leaving everyone else behind.
Before his accident, Micah enjoyed making music with his friends and is currently working on his theme song for his graduation ceremony, which took place on September 24th. We know how hard he has worked to get to this day, we applaud every accomplishment, and cannot wait to see what his future holds.
