Hall County mans story of paralyzing injury told on video
Placeholder Image

A South Hall man whose May 2008 fall from a ladder resulted in paralysis tells his story as part of a video on the Shepherd Center’s Web site.

Kenny and Teri Pope, who live in Chestnut Mountain, are featured in the “Stories of Hope” video, along with Pope’s neurosurgeon and an AT&T co-worker who is also paralyzed.

Soon after the Mother’s Day accident, Pope was rushed to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville, then later transferred to the Shepherd Center, an Atlanta hospital specializing in the treatment of people with spinal cord injury and disease, acquired brain injury and other neuromuscular problems.

Shepherd Center teamed up with KPKinteractive, an Atlanta-based production team, on the “Stories of Hope” series.
