Storytelling: Bringing Courtney Home
Courtney Johnson-Atherden had the world by the tail--she had just bought her first home and was planning a wedding to her long-time boyfriend--when she was in a head-on collision caused by poor weather conditions. She suffered a severe brain injury and was in a coma for months.
After two years of rehabilitation in a special program, her progress had stalled. Her family decided it was time to bring Courtney home.
