Our own Stefani Schaefer on Friday said her family has reached a heartbreaking realization in her husband's recovery.

Roger fell from scaffolding more than a year ago. Doctors just recently told Stefani that his brain suffered too much trauma to return to normal.

Although she remains grateful that Roger is physically here, Stef says she has begun the process of accepting that the Roger she once knew may never come back.

As her family continues to move forward, Stef says she is thankful for all the love and support she's received from family, friends and viewers.

She's also touched that FOX 8 has decided to host an annual 5K race that will benefit The MetroHealth Foundation’s Brain Injury Program.
