Christian Mayberry, the 17-year-old teen from Muldrow who was severely injured in an ATV crash on Sept. 1, 2013, continues to improve at the Florida Institute of Neurologic Rehabilitation in Wauchala, Florida. His parents, Kim and John, stay in Florida with their son, and are looking forward to a better Christmas this year than last. Kim explained, "Christian lost Christmas last year. He essentially was in a coma."
Christian's story, including his struggle to regain his health and mobility, has been followed by people all over the country and especially here in Sequoyah County.
