Gabrielle Giffords on ABC’s 20/20

More than ten months after she was shot in the head last January, Representative Gabrielle Giffords is able to walk and is regaining her ability to speak, owing in large part to prolonged, intensive therapy.

The need for treatment is ongoing:  At this stage of her recovery, Ms. Giffords still has difficulty speaking in sentences and receives two hours of therapy daily.

Shortly after the shooting, Ms. Giffords’s husband, Mark Kelly, began making videos documenting the stages of her recovery.  Ms. Giffords and Mr. Kelly spoke with Dianne Sawyer on ABC’s 20/20 about the process and shared some of the videos.

Watch the episode.
