Update: Greenville man gets scholarship to internationally-recognized rehab center

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

An update to a personal story we've been following for the past year.

We first told you about Phillip Bryant last July. A serious car accident left him paralyzed from the waist down. But through it all he's been determined to walk again, and even got a scholarship to go to a state-of-the-art rehab facility in California.

Just this week, 9 on your side learned Bryant has been hospitalized with a serious hip infection. But that hasn't changed his positive attitude.

Bryant says it's been a whirlwind of a month, but he's still determined to make it out to California. We talked with him about the trip just a few weeks ago.

"To go out there for a month, I'm going to be away from my daughter for a month but it's good for me to continue the therapy so i can get back on my feet for my daughter," he said.

Bryant's ultimate goal is to one day walk his young daughter, Avery, down the aisle.

Friends and family have already started a fund to help pay for Bryant's travel costs and stay while he's in California. If you'd like to help out you can go to: http://www.gofundme.com/christcallingus

We first introduced you to Phillip Bryant last July. A serious car accident left him paralyzed from the waist down.

But Bryant was determined to walk again. Week by week he continues to make huge strides.

"Project Walk", an internationally recognized rehab center in California, just gave Bryant a month-long scholarship.

"I'm going to be away from my daughter for a month but it's good for me to continue the therapy so I can get back on my feet for my daughter," said Bryant.
