Heather Abbott: Profile in Courage; Newport Strong

By admin

Heather Abbott of Newport, RI, a victim in the Boston Bombing, is making a strong comeback. Heather’s left ankle was too badly injured in the bombing on April 15.  She underwent an amputation a few days later.  Since then she has been to Sapulding Rehab and now is a patient at OPT in Middletown.  Her progress has been unbelievably swift and steady.  She is well ahead of schedule, and has since returned to work.  The last bit of rehab for Heather at OPT will involve plyometrics and return to running as she is anxious to begin to get back to the activities she loves.  We wish her continued strength and progress to go along with her great, positive attitude.
