Rep. Gabrielle Giffords left Texas today to undergo intensive therapy in North Carolina through Nov. 4.
The Arizona Democrat’s two-week stay in Asheville had been planned for months, according to a statement from her office. Giffords will receive treatment from a therapist who has worked with her for several months in Houston as she recuperates from a brain injury.
Giffords was shot in the head Jan. 8 at a constituent event in Tucson, Ariz. The attack killed six people and wounded her and 12 others.
