A walk for hope

“For those of us who live in a wheelchair — to stand up and see yourself in a mirror, to look your friends in the eye, well, it’s an overwhelming feeling.”

So said Dr. Ed Farrar, Wenatchee orthopedic surgeon paralyzed from the chest down in a tragic car-bicycle collision five years ago. He made the comments after he stood and walked, wrapped in a bionic exoskeleton called the Ekso GT. For those who know him, Farrar’s comments hit home — it was an overwhelming feeling just watching him stand and walk, aided by a miraculous machine.
