Welcome to my Personal Page. On September 15, 2007 I was involved in a motor vehicle vs pedestrian accident. I was struck by a drunk driver while crossing the street. I sustained a closed frontal lobe injury to my brain. I was knocked unconscious into a coma where I remained for 7 days. I suffered bleeding of the brain, swelling of the brain, cerebrial fluid on my spine, multiple skull fractures, superficial brusing and a torn ACL. When I woke up for my coma after seven days I never knew how drastically my life would change. Let alone what a TBI was. After spending 7 days at Allegheny general hospital ICU I was transferred via ambulance to UPMC South Side where I would begin journey to recovery. I had lost all cognitive functioning and my memory was a thing of the past. I no longer knew how to do the simple everyday things I had taken for granted for 18 years – walking, talking, writing – and remembering. Over the past decade I have strived to accept my new normal and relearn how to learn, love and accept myself. I am asking you to sponsor my team Titanium Cranium and I and join me in the Highmark Healthy Walk for the Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania! Bring you pups, strutt your stuff and meet other survivors just like me!!
