Runner Looks Forward to Active Future After Cartilage Transplant  |  January 13, 2014

After overcoming a knee injury and returning to running, Jennifer was devastated when another accident halted her active lifestyle.

Her initial knee injury resulted from a rollerblading accident. Following that injury, Jennifer was told she should never run again, but anyone who knows runners, knows that it is a hard activity to stop. After taking five years off, she started running again with no pain. Thrilled, she jumped back into her exercise routine, that was until her three-year-old jumped on her knee and reinjured it.

“I have always been an active person. Our family is a very active family,” Jennifer said. “I’ve been a runner for my entire life. Without it, I was depressed, had trouble sleeping, and felt like I had to find a new way to identify myself.”
