Patient with spinal cord injury returns to military, school thanks to TIRR Memorial Hermann

HOUSTON (November09, 2018)

The 26-year-old first lieutenant in the Louisiana Army National Guard was enjoying time off before her monthly weekend-long training on base to prepare for deployment in 2019. As the women began crossing the street, a distracted driver in a speeding SUV hit them. The impact from the accident tore Sneed’s spinal cord from the base of her skull. Two weeks later, Sneed was transferred to TIRR Memorial Hermann in Houston—the No. 2 rehabilitation hospital in the nation—for in-patient care. Although she was unable to talk, walk, move her limbs or eat when she arrived at TIRR, her care team began intense therapy to jumpstart her recovery.
