Patrick McCoy
From Darkness to Light: The upside to extreme trauma.

Patrick was involved in two consecutive car accidents on June 15, 2021. As a result he was flown by helicopter to Boston Medical Center, where it was determined that the best course of action was to amputate his lower right leg. After two weeks there, he went to Spaulding Rehabilitation Center in Charlestown for another two weeks. There, he learned how to function as an amputee. Once home, he took control of the narrative, and determined how the story would unfold. His experience is about adversity, and how he turned it into a positive.
