When Anthony Martinez arrived at Vibra Hospital of Northern California, his outlook was grim. Anthony had recently been in a bicycle accident, suffering a traumatic brain injury. That led to acute respiratory failure, with Anthony dependent on a ventilator to breathe for him. He could not move or care for himself, totally dependent upon others.

But then, Vibra's interdisciplinary team got to work. Respiratory, physical, occupational, and speech therapies collaborated to help Anthony heal. Before long, Anthony was ready to discharge home, independently mobile.

Anthony, your determination and drive to improve made a lasting impression on all of us at Vibra. Your humor and love will forever be in our hearts. It was a joy to watch your transformation from dependence to independence.
