Hugh Porter TestimonialHugh Porter, age 77, a former construction worker and Army paratrooper was hospitalized on a ventilator for 6 months in his home town of Patten , Maine . He spent almost all his time in a lethargic state, induced largely by medications, and prospects for weaning off the ventilator grew dimmer with each passing day.
