Sam Porritt

2012 Rehab Hall of Fame

While on vacation in Italy, Sam Porritt was taking photographs overlooking a patio terrace. After misjudging a step, he fell 15 feet over a wall. Sam lost all feeling from the waist down, and he was rushed into surgery.

After 17 days in an Italian hospital, Sam was flown straight to The University of Kansas Hospital and began rehabilitation. In honor of Sam's never-give-up attitude and determination to get well, he was honored and inducted into The University of Kansas Health System Rehabilitation Hall of Fame.
