Gary Sinise Foundation Presents Accessible Home to Bryan Anderson
Bryan Anderson, a U.S. Army veteran who served two tours in Iraq, has received a custom-built accessible home in Tennessee from the Gary Sinise Foundation.
Anderson — a motivational speaker, actor, and spokesperson for Quantum Rehab — became a triple amputee after the vehicle he was driving hit an IED while he was serving in the Baghdad area in 2005.
The new house features an open floor plan, with kitchen appliances, sink and fixtures positioned so Anderson can drive his power chair up to and under them without hitting walls or cabinets. The spacious bathroom has a shower area with built-in seating — quite the change from showering on the floor, which Anderson has been doing since being injured.
“I’m going to come out of my bedroom every morning and just look and smile,” Anderson said in the video that welcomed him home.
