Today’s 1 Year Anniversary: Western Mass Hospital
One year ago today, on July 9, 2019, I had a small "see ya later" party with the rehabilitation team at Western Massachusetts Hospital....
My name is Jacob Haendel. Not only am I a survivor of Stage 4 Toxic Acute Progressive Leukoencephalopathy (TAPL) and Locked-In Syndrome, I'm also the only documented recovery from TAPL. I'm here to share my story about overcoming addiction and surviving a terminal progressive disease.
My hope is to motivate others who may be facing any challenges in life and inspire people going through all types of recovery.
Follow along on my journey back to health!
