Former STAR Reporter Steve Burwick is now home after undergoing two weeks of rehabilitation to build strength in his right arm and leg.
Burwick underwent surgery Sept. 12 to remove a cancerous tumor from his brain. A doctor at that time told Burwick he possibly would never be able to walk again. However, with the aid of a cane, he walked out of Quillen Rehabilitation Hospital Wednesday.
Burwick’s wife, Debbie, said he had worked very hard while in rehab, and his goal was to be able to walk when he left the hospital. “He still has some weakness in his right arm and hand as well as his leg,” she said.
