Jack Jablonski making strides at Sister Kenny Rehabilitation Institute

[KARE-TV, February 05, 2012] Like many of his 16-year-old classmates Jack Jablonski is learning to drive.

Thursday he took his first trip through the halls of Sister Kenny Rehabilitation Institute in his motorized wheelchair. He displayed the usual student driver anxiety, but significantly, his left hand was running the controls.

It ranked as one of the ups for Jack this past week, the kind of milestone that helps him deal with the downs since he was paralyzed in December during a hockey game. Watch the story here.
