Going Home

In the summer of 2009 Andrew Morris was shot in the head in a road rage incident while driving with his three young children in Oakland, CA. With the courageous help of his children he survived and spent a month recovering at Alameda County Medical Center’s Highland Hospital. He was later transferred to Fairmont Rehabilitation Hospital where he received physical, occupational and speech therapy. Now he’s going home without health insurance, not knowing if all the bills will be paid.
