PISCATAWAY, N.J. (March 30, 2011) –Rutgers junior Eric LeGrand (Avenel, N.J.) was released from the Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation today in West Orange and will reside at his aunt’s home in Jackson, N.J. for the near future. LeGrand was at Kessler since November 8.
“This is an exciting day for me to return to living with family,” said LeGrand. “My family and I can’t thank Kessler enough for all of the tremendous care and support I received as I continue rehab from my injury. It has meant so much to me to receive so many well wishes and prayers from everyone.”
LeGrand will continue the rehabilitation process as an outpatient twice a week at the Kessler Rehabilitation Center in Ocean Township and once a week at the Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation in West Orange. Last week, his tracheotomy was removed.
Any updates on Eric’s condition – when appropriate – will be issued by the family through the Rutgers Athletic Communications Office. All updates will be available online at www.ScarletKnights.com/Believe.
