‘For S.K.’

By Ray Lee

"My wife Shary was hit by a car on her bicycle when she was seventeen years old. At the time, the doctor wanted to amputate her leg, but her parents convinced the doctor not to amputate. Afterwards, as she recovered in a cast that extended from her foot to her hip, the surgeon warned her that she may never walk again. Shary just celebrated her 61st birthday. She still can walk, but at times with considerable pain. The way she has lived her life after suffering such a horrific trauma is a perfect example of resilience."
