Brain Injury found me through by wife’s auto accident on Sept 12, 1989. I nothing about brain injury and then began my journey to educate myself and in doing so I began helping other families and their survivor family member. It has not been easy as I am a Male and I have no female network as I have seen. When Mary’s accident occurred we had been married three years and she was 20 yoa. We lost an entire income when we live on two incomes. It has not been easy yet we are still together now 31 years. I love her very much.
