Paralyzed mom works to regain strength and mobility

During a physical therapy session Wednesday at Project Walk in Stratham, New Hampshire, this week, Jessica Cyr spoke openly with the Portsmouth Herald about the accident last July that paralyzed her and the arduous months since. Her loss of mobility has not darkened her spirits, nor her motive to “recover 100 percent.”

Cyr said medical professionals don’t give any sort of expectations to those with spinal cord injuries when it comes to levels of recovery. “I don’t know what the future brings, I’d like to be done with this,” she laughed. “I’d like to just get up and go about my business, take my dog for a walk.”
