It takes just an instant for a person’s life to change forever. And for Killeen resident Erin Wood, an instant was literally all it took to turn a joy ride into a near fatal accident. With the help of skilled physicians, hard work, determination and a “never give up” attitude, Erin fought back from a tragedy many thought she would never survive.
Her survival and recovery hinged on a team effort of doctors, nurses, rehabilitation experts and a number of other healthcare workers. Fortunately, Erin was in close proximity to the only Level I trauma center in Central Texas, at Scott & White in Temple. Here a team of specialists was able to not only heal the broken bones, but also help to inspire her in her recovery.
