Call in to speak with the host
Most sports-related head injuries, such as concussions, allow for complete recovery. However, concussions which temporarily interfere with the way the brain works, can also pose serious health risks, ranging from temporary memory lapses to fatal brain swelling.
Concussion can cause temporary loss of brain function leading to cognitive, physical and emotional symptoms, such as confusion, vomiting, headache, nausea, depression, disturbed sleep, moodiness, and amnesia.
Ally Crich is a 19 year-old brain injury survivor, who experienced six concussions over the course of five years. Her first concussion occurred when she was 13, and part of a provincial soccer team.
Devin Kernaghan had a promising future in sports. He wrestled at the national level and was on track to wrestle in University. A slight error in judgement while playing football cost him his dream. After having suffered a concussion, his life dramatically changed from having seizures and headaches, to light and noise sensitivities, that plague him still today, even after three years.
Ally and Devin share their stories of how concussion drastically altered their health and potential, on our LIVE broadcast on Wednesday, December 18th @ 7PM EST at BEYONDtheCheers on blogtalkradio. Dial-in TOLL FREE 1-877-357-2448 in Canada and United States to ask a question, or email in advance.
