I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
At the bi-monthly meeting of the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities (BPDD) (http://wi-bpdd.org/) the Brain Injury Association of Wisconsin (http://biaw.org/) made a presentation. I was surprised to learn how many brain injuries go unnoticed. Many times, unless there are visible signs of a head injury, it is not something that is often checked out. Like everything else in this world, no two people are alike and the results of the same blow to the head can affect each person differently.
Public awareness of brain injury has grown due in part to the significant number of blast injuries sustained by military service members, greater attention to sports related injuries and increased media exposure.
