On a balmy August morning in 1996, Frank Favaloro '96 was preparing for one of those days that marks a turning point in any student's life. With a Ryder van parked in front of his parents' Norfolk, Mass., home, he was ready to embark on a new academic adventure at the University of Pennsylvania.

But then something went wrong. While attempting to lower a futon mattress from his attic, Favaloro lost his balance, fell down a flight of stairs and lost consciousness. After that fateful day in August, Favaloro's future would be forever altered.
