One Door Closes

January Jones welcomes Tom Ingrassia and Jared Chrudimsky co-author’s of When One Door Closes: Overcoming Adversity By Following Your Dreams sharing true life stories of people who have overcome insurmountable obstacles in order to live their dreams. Today’s interview features Ken McDonnell who is a husband, a father, triathlete and public relations director for Wake Up Narcolepsy, a nonprofit supporting awareness for Narcolepsy awareness and research.   

In October 2007, just two weeks after completing a triathlon, Ken was riding his mountain bike when a car struck him from behind. He has no recollection of the accident, or the next five weeks. He was air-lifted to UMass Medical Center where a team of trauma specialists saved his life, and where his saga began, through life support, risky surgery, lengthy rehad and finally back from the abyss.
