6Who saved the day?

Needless to say, Riona's main priority was bouncing back from the tragedy. With four young children and her paralysis it obviously wasn't easy. Most physical therapists and trainers refused to work with her as they believed no amount of rehabilitation could make Riona walk again. That's when someone recommended the name of Keith Mason to her.

10How did Keith help?

Keith and Riona worked hard to get her back on her feet. Riona said that she was unable to walk and was dragging her feet for a very long time. She had no feeling in her legs and couldn't stand at all, and today she can walk without any support. Doctors were left awestruck at her progress especially as they had never seen anything like this before.
