Michael Meyer & His Mother
Michael Meyer & His Mother Laurie Meyer Cox was a constant presence during her son's recovery. "The care Michael received at the University of Iowa was phenomenal," she says. "Even during the dark days and hard times, everyone was calm, everyone was professional. I would say repeatedly every day, 'It’s another great day in Iowa.'"
