'Standing Tall'On Sept. 21, Kevin Everett arrived at Memorial Hermann|TIRR completely paralyzed from the neck down. After months of aggressive therapy from a specialized spinal cord team at Memorial Hermann|TIRR, Kevin is walking today.

Everett's journey back up on to his own two feet will be available Feb. 1 to everyone in a book titled "Standing Tall" written by Philadelphia Inquirer sports columnist Sam Carchidi.

Everett's entire life is chronicled in the 224-page biography by Triumph Books, but approximately three-quarters of the book deals with his horrific injury that gained widespread attention and his subsequent recovery. Memorial Hermann|TIRR is honored to be a part of Kevin's remarkable journey. His story is an inspiration to the estimated 11,000 patients who suffer from spinal cord injuries each year. He has and will continue to serve as an inspiration to the many patients at Memorial Hermann|TIRR.
