Little Known Facts

The 1998 Gala keynote speaker, "Superman" Christopher Reeve was SO available to all the
patients who wanted to meet him in the rehab unit. He stayed in our Heart Center Inn and
had a rest and massage in between afternoon tour of rehab and the evening's event. He went
on after to speaking circuit with Zig Zigler and others and made an announcement there that
he'd never had such unbelievable care in such a first-rate place like WakeMed!!!
