Traumatic Brain Injury
Hope42Day interviews "Ambassadors of Hope" from across the globe: people who are up to good things! Please join Hope42Day's Host Coach Lynn Kindler and her guest Author and TBI thriving survivor Mark Elswick
As a 23-year old, Mark Elswick had everything going for him, a good job, junior in college, baby on the way, loving family environment, and plenty of friends. Then, something that had never crossed his mind interrupted his comfortable young life.
Mark was involved in a bizarre auto accident, sustaining a severe traumatic brain injury. Following life support and a month-long coma, he was forced to re-learn life’s basic necessities. He had to retrain his brain to think, eat, walk, talk, and everything else imaginable. Mark was able to take the lessons he had learned from his parents and the strong examples of preserverance his father set caring for his family of six to help him through this traumatic event.
Immediately after his accident, his family was told Mark wouldn’t make it through the day. A week later, they were told that Mark would be a vegetable “if” he ever regained consciousness. Fortunately, though, the perseverance Mark saw daily from family, friends, teachers, coaches, and community members has propelled him to rise above those negative predictions.
Since then, Mark graduated from the Univ. of Michigan-Flint with a B.A. in English and double minor in Writing and British Literature. Then, he earned my M.A. from Central Michigan Univ. In addition to his student status, he's been a sportswriter, sports editor, substitute teacher, jr. hi. teacher, college professor, and university coordinator.
