SPEAK OUT! Faces of Brain Injury – Michael A. Flusche (part 2) (survivor)
Donna O’Donnell Figurski
Brain Injury is NOT Discriminating!
On April 13, 1996, I had a near-fatal car accident before my junior prom. Many people thought that I wouldn’t make it to see my seventeenth birthday. I fooled them. The doctors and nurses thought that I had taken my last breath. I fooled them. I pulled through and graduated from high school in May of 1997.
Then I attended college directly that following August. I was there five years, and I earned my BS Natural Science. I may have overcome high hurdles in my life, but they were put there so I could prove to myself that I am here until I die. Nothing is going to destroy me. If you knock me down, I promise you that I will get back up swinging.
