Jehovah's Witnesses' Hospital Liaison Committee Help Surgeons Adapt To Alternative Treatments
The faith opposes traditional blood trans- fusions, and the rep- resentatives suggest alternative treatments.
If it weren't for the Jehovah's Witness hospital liaison committee, Ted Christensen believes that he wouldn't be able to walk today.
"It pulled me through," the Tulsa-area contractor said. "Without doing the surgery and working with the liaison committee, I'd be in a wheelchair."
Christensen, 37, needed the surgery last year after an accident involving an all-terrain vehicle he was riding at Camp Gruber near Braggs. The vehicle rolled over, breaking his left pelvis and crushing his right pelvis.
