Brain injury survivors and their families told their stories of struggle and endurance after their traumatic accidents.

I wanted to know the answers to all the questions. How long will he be here? How long will he be there? And everything just about I asked,” said Carol Ragland, describing her son’s recover. “They could not answer, because it was so individual between the injury and the person and the ages as to how they recover.”
Concussions are the most common brain injury and are often caused by sports injuries, car accidents, and falls.
