Defying Docs Who Said He Would Never Walk or Talk Again

(Taranaki Daily News) – Almost two years since Thomas White suffered a horrific brain injury in a car crash that killed his brother, he is making strides in his recovery.

The chatty 20-year-old has defied doctors’ predictions he might never walk or talk again.

And in case there are any doubts, he’s proving his health by taking part in a fun run/walk this weekend in honour of his late brother, Daniel.

“He’s part of my motivation. I want to do it for him,” the Stratford lad said.

When Thomas crosses the 10 kilometre finish line, he’ll do so with his arm, tattooed with a tribute to Daniel, extended. CONTINUE
