Former NFL San Fran 49er, George Visger had many concussions during his years playing organized football. His turning point came when he had a severe concussion during the 1981 Super Bowl season with the San Francisco 49ers in a game against the Dallas Cowboys.
George has good advice for brain injury survivors. “Turn your negative into a positive and touch people’s lives. Focus on your positives."
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating.
But as Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Life is all about choices!
