TBI – Survivors, Caregivers, Family, and Friends

th-8

 

 

The Crash Reel” is a gripping 4+ star movie about Kevin Pearce, a champion snowboarder who was expected to win a gold medal in the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Kevin Pearce - after TBI

Kevin Pearce – after TBI

Then his dream was interrupted by a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI.)

There is amazing footage of Kevin before and after his crash.  The incredible love and concern of his family is readily apparent.  Kevin’s dream is different now, and he has found a useful and fulfilling life.

The movie/documentary will give you an inside look at one young man’s battle with TBI. I highly recommend the movie.

  1. Donna,

    What a wave of emotions.
    For me it is hard to watch anything that might lead to a TBI injury……except NASCAR…
    I love the drive and determination Kevin has and I cried when I heard his brother say he did not want Kevin to die.

    TBI is such a difficult intrusion into people’s as we know.

    10 years after my accident I’m just beginning to be able to watch movies…..and only at home still….not many public events for me !

    Hope things are well.

    God Bless

  2. Papa,

    Yes, the movie was very emotional. It was hard to see such a young and accomplished young man, who was striving so high, to be cut down. Still Kevin is redirecting his energies to bring more awareness to the public eye of the hardships of living with Traumatic Brain Injury. I too hope to bring awareness to TBI with my book, “Prisoner Without Bars” (whenever it gets published).

    All best,

    On a 2015 snowboarding trip to Mammoth CA, my husband had taken a few tumbles (as we all do), however, one fall was a bit more jarring with a whiplash type effect that severed his carotid artery and went undiagnosed without any symptoms (other than the usual 40 year old man aches & pains from snowboarding). Until 3 days later, when he suffered his first of a series of strokes.

    Total fluke with no similar cases that I could find. I’ve poured over the internet researching, learning, looking for support, and this is the very first time I’ve ever seen, heard, or in any way come across this story/movie.

    Thank you so very much! I’m looking forward to learning more but really appreciate your blog and the variety of information that I am just beginning to discover. 🙂

No memory of the day that changed my life

My name is Michelle Munt and this is my story about surviving a brain injury and what I continue to learn about it. This is for other survivors and their loved ones, but also to raise awareness of what can happen to those in an accident. This invisible injury too often goes undiagnosed and it can be difficult to find information about it. I will talk about things that have helped me as I continue to recover and invite others to see if it works for them too.

Bienvenue. I’m thinking this is the spot where I am to write a witty, flowery personal section that pulls you in......I got nuthin’
