Michigan man using brain injury to give hope to other TBI sufferers

A Davison Township man, now 42-years-old, has recently finished a book that recounts his struggle with  offers hope and advice for others that have suffered an accident.

In September 1992, the man was struck by a car while activating his emergency lights following a minor fender bender. The accident left him with a broken shin, damaged orbital bone, and a fractured skull. After being rushed to the hospital, doctors claimed that he would not likely live through the day. He soon went into a coma that ultimately lasted a month.

When he finally awoke a month later, he had no memory of the accident itself, or several days before it, as well as his time at the hospital. After countless speech and physical therapy sessions over the past 19 years, he has shown remarkable recovery, although he still struggles with a poor memory and minor speech problems. However, he has since returned to college to finish his bachelor's degree in English, and earn a master's in athletic administration, and has raised a daughter who is now 18-years-old.

Fifteen percent of the proceeds from his new book will be donated to Brain Injury Association of America. He has also begun working on another book, "Traumatic Brain Injuries: Milestones in Recovery," which is scheduled to be published in 2012. The author hopes that he can help educate people in the struggle that people recovering from Traumatic Brain Injury face, as well as share his own experiences with recovery with others.
