When a looming leg surgery threatened to keep Reece Barham out of the dugout, the Hartfield Academy student and baseball statistician handled the challenge like a major leaguer.
Reece and his parents chose Methodist Outpatient Therapy for his post-operative care, knowing he would need therapy equipment and technology only available at MRC.
“I think I have probably touched nearly every machine they’ve got in there,” Reece said. Reece completed outpatient therapy and is pleased with his progress. “I am definitely in less pain, and I can tell my endurance is better,” he said.
After a visit to MRC’s Assistive Technology Seating Clinic, the Barhams also decided to upgrade Reece’s wheelchair. Its expanded features will help Reece as he plans to navigate college campuses after high school.
With stronger legs and a new wheelchair chair for backup, Reece is ready to step up to the plate.
