At the age
of 21, Murphy suffered an AVM and had three brain surgeries. The first was
emergency. The second AVM was elective. The third was a shunt. He had to
relearn everything! It's a miracle that he is walking, talking and working a
part-time job. Murphy continues to work hard with exercise everyday and says
that is key to his recovery. Murphy has a great spirit and a wonderful sense of
humor. He is a fighter and a teacher. It's been 14 years (June 9,1995). Our son
Murphy, 36 years old, is our greatest gift!!!
