Adam Taliaferro was paralyzed while making a tackle for Penn State in a game at Ohio State in 2000. After spinal-fusion surgery, doctors told Adam's parents their son would probably never walk again. Three months later, the miracle was completed as Adam walked out of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia. Today the miracle continues as Adam embarks on a career with one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies!
