                           HON. BILL SHUSTER

                            of pennsylvania

                     Wednesday, September 14, 2016

  Mr. SHUSTER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Christopher 
Neyman, a winner of the Patient Advocate Award from the HealthSouth 
Rehabilitation Hospital of Altoona.
   Chris's wife, Deb, suffered a catastrophic sequence of events in 
2015, when she had two strokes and was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. 
Throughout this immensely challenging time, Chris managed to care for 
his wife's every need while also caring for their two children, Tommy 
and Martha Jean.
   With Chris's unrelenting support, Deb has made a miraculous 
recovery, and has even returned to many of her previous activities, 
such as teaching at the Glendale Area School District. According to 
many of those involved in Deb's treatment and care, Chris was an 
endless supply of support and motivation throughout Deb's recovery.
   While his wife's positivity and impressive efforts to recover are 
worth celebrating in their own right, there can be no doubt that Chris 
has provided exemplary care. Given his admirable actions in support of 
his wife and family through a time of tremendous hardship, Chris is 
unquestionably deserving of this recognition. As such, it is my honor 
to help celebrate his having received this award.
