Episode 206: Let’s See What We Can Do About That—Or How Garry Rosman Learned To Walk Again

12.1.20 In 1989, Gary Rosman was a 36 years old wheat farmer with plans to buy more land when a grain auger he was moving fell and crushed his back. Paralyzed, Rosman could have accepted his doctor’s advice to get used to a wheelchair.  He didn’t, and as a result not only did he learn to walk again, he learned how to be happy. In episode 206 entitled: Let’s See What We Can Do About That—Or How Garry Rosman Learned To Walk Again, the 66 year old reveals the physical and psychological journey he has taken over the last 30 years while continuing to farm his 1,600 acre farm north of Davenport.
