SPEAK OUT! Faces of Brain Injury

Brain Injury is Not Discriminating.

It can happen to anyone, anytime, . . . and anywhere.

The Brain Trauma Foundation states that there are 5.3 million people in the United States living with some form of brain injury.

On “Faces of Brain Injury,” you will meet survivors living with brain injury. I hope that their stories will help you to understand the serious implications and complications of brain injury.

The stories on SPEAK OUT! Faces of Brain Injury are published with the permission of the survivor or designated caregiver.

If you would like your story to be published, please send  a short account and two photos to me at donnaodonnellfigurski@gmail.com. I’d love to publish your story and raise awareness for Brain Injury.

This is my hero, Gibson – my mirMerzlock, Gibsonacle baby. On August 21, 2013, he was kicked in the head by a horse. He has a severe TBI, but he is doing well. We still have a long road ahead, but he is still here with us.
