GOOD NEWS Paralyzed Army Veteran Gifted Mortgage-Free 'Smart Home' for Christmas
An Army veteran and Purple Heart recipient received a new home for Christmas that was built to accommodate his wartime injuries.
Former combat medic Travis Worrell received the mortgage-free home thanks to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, founded by Frank Siller.
Worrell is a quadriplegic who was paralyzed after sustaining injuries in Afghanistan in 2012, according to the organization.
The foundation was started after Siller's brother, Stephen, died while trying to save others during the terror attack on Sept. 11, 2001.
He said Monday on America's Newsroom that the home will give a lot of Worrell's independence back to him.
"There's so many others out there that need these type of homes that are specially adapted for their injuries," he added.
According to Tunnel to Towers, Worrell's new home in Texas features "wide doorways and walkways allowing him to move about the home freely in his wheelchair."
Siller also said Monday that his organization now builds homes for Gold Star families.
