Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute helps woman to walk again

[KARE11 News, June 06, 2022] Heather Hahn is a living miracle. Last year, Hahn underwent surgery to remove a spinal cord tumor.

So I went to get it removed in Feb 2021, and the first surgery, they lost all connections to my spinal cord, so three surgeries later, I woke up paralyzed from my waist down," she said.

Hahn thought she would never be able to walk again. "When you're paralyzed like that it's like it's all gone, you just sit in bed and cry."

She joined Allina Health's Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute's ABLE: Activity-Based Locomotor Exercise Program, spending the last three months fighting to regain strength in her legs. Now, she's walking again.
