A Nation in Motion: Ned Bryant.
Because of his orthopaedic care, he can zip up his coat and hold his mom’s hand. Ned was hospitalized for a week following a playground accident that resulted in a severe open fracture, vascular trauma and nerve damage. Ned lost mobility and sensation in his left hand.
