Adil Karamally Receives Joe Groh Foundation Grant

July 09, 2016

The Joseph Groh Foundation is an incredible organization that gives financial support to those in the construction industry who are living with life-altering injuries. Each year the Foundation honors numerous recipients with a grant and this year the Joseph Groh Foundation was happy to present Adil Karamally as a recipient.

Adil, raised in Pakistan, obtained his MBA from the University of Chicago and afterwards bought ProStar Mechanical Services of Anaheim, CA and received his HVAC and general contracting license. Three years ago, Adil endured a massive stroke at only 48 years old. He lost the ability to use his left arm and the stroke left his left leg seriously impaired, causing foot drop. Because he could only walk while using a heavy brace, his muscles began to degenerate and his doctors worried that he would most likely become permanently in a wheelchair.

Unable to work, Adil’s wife, Laila, was their lone source of income, putting financial tension on the couple with a young child in elementary and three more children in college. Their hopes were lifted when Adil was told about the WalkAid System, a device that utilizes functional electrical stimulation to help a person with foot drop walk again. But when they learned of the cost, Adil and Laila realized they were not able to afford the device in addition to the comprehensive rehab that would be needed so he could understand how to use it.

Fortunately, a professional at WalkAid directed the couple to the Joseph Groh Foundation and, due to the incredible grant, Adil got the WalkAid System and has already experienced wonderful success. His muscle is starting to regenerate and not atrophy, bringing hope back to Adil and Laila.

Service Experts is an official sponsor of the Foundation and long-term friend of Joe’s. To discover more about the Joseph Groh Foundation or to contribute, see their website.
