When Mark Hogencamp woke up in the hospital he had no idea who he was or where he was. He was beat up so badly that he couldn’t walk, talk or speak. When his therapies are cut off by Medicaid, Mark has to make his own treatment, and in the process he makes some most unusual friends. Once you’ve listened, we know you want to see the photos.
