      John Losurdo


      One of John Losurdo's greatest joys in life was riding his motorcycle in his free time. Then he was in an accident that left him with a broken back and paralysis of his legs.

      After two months in an acute hospital, John arrived at SSM Rehabilitation Hospital filled with doubts. "When I first got here, I was broken, both physically and mentally," John recalls. "I had no direction. I often wondered how they were going to help me."

      Over time, he became a believer in SSM. "They give you confidence. You don't really see how you are gaining, but they kept telling me how good I was doing. They just kept driving me, and every day I'd get better."

      John's goal was to be able to ride a motorcycle again within a year. With months to spare, he met his goal when he purchased a trike motorcycle. Next up--a road trip through the Great Smokey Mountains.
