Story of my accident/TBI

My name is Brian and I'm a 21 year old junior at PSU - University Park. My path to get to the school of my dreams has been a bit unusual. Over four years ago (11/7/04) I drove the normal 1 hr voyage from my house to Penn State in order to watch the PSU vs. East Stroudsburg basketball scrimmage. I am a big time sports and Penn State guy, and the game went well. We won in blow out fashion and I was off in my car again to get home. I pulled into Sheetz to get gas and a snack for the road. I'm sure… Continue

In the process of being thrown forward I fractured my left femur (thigh bone) on my dad’s bucket seat and then made direct contact with the inside of the windshield. Consequently, I sustained an open skull fracture. I… Continue

I've talked to people in the brain injury community, I've written an article in the BIA of Oregon and sent the same article to over a dozen BIA branches across the country. Only the… Continue
