Brian McKenna

Editor's note: Brian McKenna passed away suddenly on May 6, 2018. He was a force to be reckoned with and inspired all those who knew him with his positivity and larger than life personality. He will be greatly missed.

Brian McKenna’s life was changed by a bike accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down. However, that isn’t stopping him from moving forward. With help from University of Utah Health's Rehabilitation Center he is pushing his limits, and learning how to stand, breathe, and live an ordinary life once again. How his remarkable story came to the attention of Ellen DeGeneres and football player Drew Brees, and how they are now aiding in his recovery.
