Clare is combining part-time work with continued physicial therapy.  She credits the community for helping her through the ordeal.  "People were so generous and making dinner for us for two months, ha, you know. Things like that. It's just an unbelievable community and I have unbelievable friends and family that supported me and co-workers," said Clare.
