Bill's Story

In 1977, when Bill was 18 years old and just out of high school, he became paralyzed following a motorcycle accident. For 37 years he had to deal with a fragmented healthcare system that didn’t meet his needs, and that wasn’t easy. Then everything changed for Bill when he joined CCA’s One Care program in 2013.
