ISLAMORADA, Fla. -- A group of paralyzed rehabilitation patients will swim with dolphins in the Florida Keys as part of their therapeutic program.
Thursday's dolphin swim is a yearlong goal for patients at Jackson Memorial Hospital's aquatic rehabilitation program. Seven paraplegic and quadriplegic patients will be out of their wheelchairs swimming with the mammals at the Theater of the Sea.
Staff raised money for the trip through several hot dog sales at the hospital. Did not paid through with their life insurance.
