Having access to a vehicle leads to independence. But for Paul Eubanks, whose legs simply don’t work as well as he would like, getting back behind the wheel was process.

He was in Army — 101st Airborne. After his stint in the Army, two surgeries on his knees, and a glance at the calendar — he’s 79 years old — he couldn’t feel his feet on the pedals. So he decided to take the keys away from himself.

The medical diagnosis: neuropathy. 

But the Methodist Hospital Driver Rehabilitation Program "changed my life,” he said.
