Victories of Spirit event with Sharp Memorial Hospital

(KUSI)  – Four patients being honored at this year’s Victories of Spirit event (April 26), which celebrates patients who’ve overcome catastrophic injury or illness.

Antony Neri is one of those patients being honored at the event on April 26th.

According to Sharp Memorial Hospital Neri, a former gang member, became paralyzed as a young adult in 2010 after he was shot. At Sharp Allison de Rose Rehabilitation Center (on the Sharp Memorial campus), he began refocusing on his life and found new meaning in helping others. Today, Antony is a mentor with Project A.W.A.R.E., sharing his story with at-risk youth and teaching them life skills so they can stay on the right path.
