Crestview woman can walk again following bout with paralysis

Published: Monday, August 19, 2013 at 10:31 AM.

Britainy was unemployed following paralysis, and Bryant quit his job to take care of the family, including his elderly father James.

"I'm glad she is up and walking," Bryant said. "I just hope it don't happen again, because it set us back."

Family, friends and community members provided relief, Bryant said. Residents Ken and Tina Gill, along with Southside School, provided money, food and clothing for the family. Manual Therapy LLC in Crestview gave free physical therapy services to Britainy.

Now, the family is working to get back on track.

Bryant works for a fast food restaurant and Britainy is going to school in Pensacola to become a certified nursing assistant.   

"With all of the different medical issues that I have overcome, it made sense to go into the medical field," Britainy said. "I can help people and encourage people with my situation."
