Mike and with his wife.

Mike’s story is our only venture into doing an interview with a survivor while still in rehab. Mike was injured in an ATV accident, a few yards from his home. His wife is the cornerstone of our interview, as Mike was still significantly impaired at the time we did the interview. She takes us through the agony of the first months of survival and recovery. The bond that makes their marriage is paramount in this interview and that connection can also be seen in our limited interview with Mike.
