name: Anthony Paparald
Age: 43 years old
From: Melrose

In December 2009, I was involved in a very serious car accident. I had 18 fractures, 7 of which were complex fractures, spent more than 3 months in a wheelchair and suffered a traumatic brain injury. I was airlifted from the scene, spent a month at the Maine Medical Center, and then transferred to Boston’s Spalding Rehab.

While at Spalding, I made tremendous progress and was able to get back to work in just four months. Since this terrible time in my life over 10 years ago, I married my wife, had two children, graduated from graduate school, and obtained a certified accountant license. This would not have been possible without the incredible work done during my time at Spalding, both inpatients and outpatients.

We are hosting the Boston Marathon this year and hope that in similar circumstances others will recover and start living again. The staff at Spalding is second to none and deserves to appreciate all the great work they do on a daily basis.
