Story of my accident/TBI

My name is Brian and I'm a 21 year old junior at PSU - University Park. My path to get to the school of my dreams has been a bit unusual.

I am a big time sports and Penn State guy, and the game went well. We won in blow out fashion and I was off in my car again to get home. I pulled into Sheetz to get gas and a snack for the road. I'm sure… Continue

In the process of being thrown forward I fractured my left femur (thigh bone) on my dad’s bucket seat and then made direct contact with the inside of the windshield. Consequently, I sustained an open skull fracture. I… Continue
