“It’s got a spring to it that I’ll get used to,” stated truck driver John Franklin after hitting the road the first day after receiving his new below- the- knee prosthetic. Standing in the rain by his big rig and gearing up mentally to head up over Siskiyou Pass in the snow, John shared his story with Glory Cooper, Executive Director of Mobility Unlimited. “You guys came to my rescue when no one else would. Even though I work full-time, I had no where near the money needed for this new leg. My insurance called it a pre-existing condition and therefore it’s not covered. I am extremely grateful for Mobility Unlimited. Thank you for allowing me to keep on truckin’!”
John’s five year goal is to acquire more trucks and eventually own his own trucking company. He is married with six children and five grandchildren.
