Jerry's story
Jerry and his wife Wendy were spending the holidays at a friend’s home. In the middle of the night, he got out of bed and fell — hitting his back on the bed frame. He tried desperately to stand up, but couldn’t move his legs. “I couldn’t feel anything and that’s when the panic set in.”
