After surviving rare cancer and horrific crash, Minneapolis woman returns to thank caregivers

When physical therapist Megan Meyer first met Magnuson after the crash, the young woman was “walking a walker, she had a knee brace on her left knee and her walking pattern was, like, really unstable.”

Meyer recalled Monday that Magnuson initially was limited to yes/no responses.

“Maybe they were accurate. Maybe they weren’t accurate,” she recalled.

“Now, she has really progressed. She [doesn’t] need a walker anymore, really built up her leg strength, especially on that left side from her fractures, and then started walking independently,” Meyer said.
