Congratulating Kenneth Cook

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. JOYCE of Pennsylvania. Madam Speaker, it is my honor to congratulate Kenneth Cook, one of the recipients of this year's Encompass Health Personal Achievement Award.

Last October, Kenneth first came to Encompass Health with the diagnosis of Guillain Barre. He had very little movement in his lower extremities and little strength in his upper extremities. On his first day, he needed the help of two therapists to get out of bed.

Kenneth knew that he had a long road to recovery ahead of him, but he was determined to emerge victorious. He never missed a day of therapy and always showed up with a positive attitude and willingness to work.

In four short weeks, Kenneth was able to walk under his own power with a walker. He eventually regained his ability to walk without a walker and return to work.

It is thrilling to hear that Kenneth was able to accomplish this with hard work and determination. Congratulations once again to Kenneth on this recognition.
