BRIAN JORDAN Dallas, PA Team Member 2018 & 2019

If doing something I love doing can benefit others, then how could I not take part? I invite you to lend your support and be part of this life-changing campaign.

On November 3, Brian Jordan will run the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon. Brian will be representing Quantum Rehab Products, long-time supporters of Allied Services and signature sponsors of WNEP’s Ryan’s Run. Brian is dedicating this year’s marathon to John Keating.

John lives in Mount Cobb with his caretaker daughter, Helene. He worked in plumbing and heating right up until he got sick. John developed an infection following gallbladder surgery and developed an abscess on his spine that left him partially paralyzed. John spent time rehabilitating at Allied Services Rehab Hospital and the Skilled Nursing & Rehab Center. When he began his rehabilitation journey, John could only wiggle his toes. Today, there is no stopping his progress.

Once John was able to return home, he began outpatient therapy where he utilized a rehab device made possible through Ryan’s Run. The 81 year old uses the Indego Exoskeleton in therapy to sit, stand, and move his hips. This is momentous for John and it has helped him regain more mobility than he ever thought possible. When using the Indego Exoskeleton, John says “it feels terrific, like walking on air.”

John uses a Quantum Rehab chair when not in therapy. He has worked so hard to be able to do things on his own, such as get in and out of bed unaided. John is surpassing many milestones and enjoying his regained independence.
