SPEAK OUT! Faces of Brain Injury – Lisa Wickenden (survivor)
Donna O’Donnell Figurski
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to publish your story and raise awareness for Brain Injury.
Lisa Wickenden (survivor)
Three years ago, my life changed forever. I now have some challenges that no one can see, but I am reminded of them every day. Three years ago, I had my accident. I will forever have a TBI (traumatic brain injury). You cannot tell I have one by looking at me. Three years ago, relationships changed between friends and me. Some friends stuck around and are still a very, very big part of my life. Some friends faded away. Three years ago, I had to start loving a new me. It’s still a struggle. But with all the support I have from family and friends, I know it’s possible.
Thank you Lisa Wickenden for sharing your story.
