Over the last five years, the WVU Medicine Jon Michael Moore Trauma Center has recognized 13 patients, who, with the help of numerous individuals across the entire spectrum of their care, have gone on to become living miracles.

On Oct. 1, four more patients joined their ranks during the Sixth Annual Night of Recognition. This year's patient honorees were:

  • Jack Marteney of Buckhannon, who was injured in a tractor accident;
  • Matt McKinney of West Union, who was injured while working on an oil well; and
  • Garrett Sanders and Matthew Sanders of Reedsville, who were injured in a car accident.

The WVU Medicine Marketing and Communications Department produced three videos that tell the patients' stories.

It was not a typical day at work at the oil well for McKinney when an unbelievable accident almost killed him. See how the doctors at the WVU Medicine Jon Michael Moore Trauma Center saved his life.
