My Brother David is one of the earliest residents at Edwards center. As far as I know, the only one who came in as a physical injury patient. David was in an accident in 1972, that was supposed to have claimed his life. When he survived and actually came out of the coma, the doctors were in denial. They said that there was just too much brain mass destroyed in the accident. They gave us instructions on how to take care of David, and sent him home. With the direct and explicit knowledge that he would not survive the year. I was young then, and I do not fully recall how Edwards came into the picture. I think it was through the news paper articles and the church. Anyways, they came and talked to my parents. " A new and evolutionary" plan. A home with 24 hour care, Dr's on staff and on call. Dave not only survived the year, he has survived almost 40 years. He has had a life. he has had Jobs. A job people, Dave loved working. I can not express enough the amount of respect and devotion I can give these people. They gave me my brother.
