“I thank God for all the wonderful people who helped me recover—Macey, Ariana, George, Lindsey, Nathan and all the other great guys at Encompass Cypress who got me to where I am now."

Testing revealed a new, post-COVID-19 diagnosis for Brown—she had Guillain-Barre syndrome, an inflammatory disorder of the nerves that may cause temporary paralysis and is often triggered by a viral infection. With this diagnosis, Brown headed back to Encompass Health Cypress to continue her therapy. Her goals were simple, yet seemed insurmountable at the time. “I was pretty much paralyzed when I got here,” she said. “My main goal was for me to just be able to stand and walk again. Everyone had faith in me, and we built our trust with each other.”
- Veronica Brown
