Hey Friends and Family!
As some of you may know I've sustained three severe head injuries. My first head injury in October 2011 doubled as a severe eye injury and I permanenly lost the vision in my right eye due to unprecedented scarring and swelling in my retina. My second head trauma in October 2013 occured on the soccer field. My most recent concussion occured in October 2014. Since that incident I have struggled with constant headaches and the difficult emotional and physical effects of cumulative concussions. Today, I see the world through one of my eyes and little by little my post-concussive symptoms are lessening. I attended the Love Your Brain Retreat last year and was welcomed by the some of the most inspiring and friendly people I've ever met.
I'll be participating in the Marathon this year and am I'm fundraising to help make this gathering free and accesible to all folks with varying levels of traumatic brain injury on behalf of the LoveYourBrain foundation and Zeno Mountain Farm; two exceptionally generous organizations.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and support two truly wonderful foundations.
