(upbeat music) – Just over a year ago, Laurie Allen, an Austin triathlete, became paralyzed after
stepping out of a hot tub and slipping on ice. She fell, fracturing two vertebrae and injuring her spinal cord. Laurie was rushed to
St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center, where she
stayed in intensive care for five days before transferring to St. David’s Rehabilitation Hospital. With an athlete’s mentality
and determination, Laurie has made tremendous strides. Not only is she exercising again, Laurie is learning to drive in a car specially-equipped for her. Read more about Laurie’s
journey in our newsletter.
