In 2008 Kenneth sustained a back injury and was unable to work due to the constant pain and the inability to sit, stand or walk. Doctors have told him that he would have to learn how to live with the pain and had to be medication. Kenneth was not willing accept living this way. During the nine years of disability, through faith, prayer, family and a rigorous therapy sessions, he was able to work his way back to a normal life as possible without the excruciating pain and the need for medication. With the help of a former co-worker, he studied for the Cardiac Sonographer exam and passed and is currently working again as Registered Cardiac Sonographer.
Kenneth is thankful and blessed to be of service in the medical field as a Cardiac Sonographer and is currently seeking to expand his profession into thermal imaging.
