The name Eugene 'Huge' Smalls does allow for some humor as we trace the life of this twelve year old in the town in which he is growing up. He is assisted in his endeavors by Thrash, his closest companion.

House calls instead of having to go to a rehabilitation center? House calls in the comfort of one's home? Sounded too good to be true. Adrianna put me in touch with Allison Webb, Regional Marketing Director to learn about Fox Rehabilitation and the fact that they visit houses, homes, apartments, assisted living and day care facilities.
