From Surviving to Thriving: The Rogers Family's Story

After a severe TBI, Airman First Class David Rogers continues to work with the VA rehab staff. They set no limits for him — he even goes rock climbing. "The day I went to the gym to see him climb, he was grinning from ear to ear, and just having a blast at it," says his father. "This is good! This is not a shot, or medicine, or drugs and stuff. This is therapy to the mind, straight to the heart, and the will of the body and everything."
