VIP is proud to welcome our newest scholarship recipient, Andrew and his family! We are honored to help them and look forward to seeing more of their journey!
Andrew's mom shares their story below:
On May 3,2007 while driving down the road, my then husband handed the wheel off to our 11 year old son to attend to a iPod. Our oldest son misguided a turn and the truck struck 3 trees impacting Andy to the head, face and chest each time.
Andrew who was 3 at the time and his sister of 4, were NOT in car seats!! I unfortunately was not there, nor did I know about my children’s accident until it was too late.
For the past 11 years I have done everything I can to rehabilitate my son! Everything! I researched and followed for 6 years about the robot and spider cage only to know that my family could not afford the extensive amount of care he needed.
In 2015, I retired from the Marine Corps and have devoted my entire life to advocating, educating and striving to rehabilitate not only my son but also assist those with disabilities!!
Today, sitting in the car only moments before going in and receiving this email stating that he has help in this, I broke down for the first time crying!!!
Thank you, thank you so very much!!!
You really have no idea how much my family appreciates this and how grateful we are!!!!
We look forward to this amazing adventure with you all and you can bet HE WILL RECOVER!!!!
Cristian and Ira are having a little extra summer time fun at VIP! Our therapists love adding in activities like soccer or surfing to make therapy fun and engaging for our patients!

VIP is proud to welcome Navy Veteran, Charles, to the VIP Scholarship Program!
Charles came to VIP to gain strength, flexibility and increased range of motion after suffering a spinal cord injury with traumatic brain injury during a cycling accident. Charles has lived a very active lifestyle and looks forward to gaining back independence. He would love to get back to his favorite activity as well - cycling! This quote from Charles sums up his awesome attitude and we are proud to have him at VIP -
"I am 56 years young and plan to live my life with the youth and vitality of my last 56 years."
