StoryCorps: Barbara Reed and Linda Lover

By Mark Scott


Buffalo, NY – WBFO presents another story that was recorded at StoryCorps in Buffalo this past summer. Barbara Reed is a retired teacher who nearly died after a car accident in 1991. Barbara suffered massive internal injuries and was placed in a drug-induced coma for 30 days. But she survived. And even though she lost much of her sight, Barbara returned to the classroom and is an inspiration to many.

Barbara sat down with her sister Linda Lover at StoryCorps. Click the audio player above to hear their conversation now or use your podcasting software to download it to your computer or iPod.
