It’s been a long road for 17-year-old Phillip Sozio and he has an even longer road ahead.
It only took one tragic moment to change this young man’s life. The teen was the victim of a violent crime. He spent months in the hospital and has undergone several surgeries and procedures. He’s left with staples, stitches and a resounding will to recover.
He has minimal use of his foot. He can bend his knee and stretches 3 times a day. Phillip started physical therapy last week and is pushing himself to get better. Yes, this bright, athletic BILLS fan has a long road ahead of him – but he is determined.
“I am still here and I am BLESSED!” are his exact words.
But the road ahead will be paved with challenges and obstacles. There will be several more surgeries, doctor visits, hospital stays and exhaustive rehabilitation…. the cost of which will be astronomical!
Phillip’s father, Buffalo native Scott Sozio says his son inspires him everyday.
