Six-time Olympic medalist Amy Van Dyken-Rouen was involved in a severe ATV accident in Arizona and was paralyzed by a spinal cord injury. Amy and her husband, Tom, were determined to get the best rehabilitation therapy for Amy’s type of injury and decided on Craig Hospital in Denver, Colorado. They contacted Angel MedFlight for a medical flight to the hospital, which is a Center of Excellence for rehabilitation. Angel MedFlight documented Amy's transport and followed up on her recovery two months later. See Amy’s champion spirit and determination to move forward. This is an inspiring rehabilitation journey.
"Professional from the first phone call when we were making arrangements to get our dad out of Cancun in June, to the most recent phone calls to my parents this week as their case file is closed. They put my mom, sister and I at ease, and were in control of the situation, letting us know that our dad was in good hands and everything would be alright" - Julie (Facebook Review)
Featured Testimonial: Lindsay's Story
