I asked Johnnie to address our distinguished board of directors as a reminder of why we do what we do everyday. As a Veteran, Johnnie spoke from the heart, shared his personal challenges and victories, with truth, compassion, and professionalism. He connected with our Members on a personal and professional level, sharing both tears and laughter. Johnnie motivated and inspired through his stories and words and forever impacted our Members.
Thank you so much for your inspiring talk at LLRS. You cause quite an upheaval in my brain. I have so many patients – you kids that have stiff joints or painful gaits. I hope that your story will ring true with my patients. I have a13-yearr old that has had 15 surgeries to lengthen his leg. He has a stiff foot. I just wrote the letter of medical necessity to get them on the list for the brace. I just wanted to say, ‘thank you”. You really had quite an impact in 1 hour!!
