Traumatizing brain injuries ruin lives. When we stop to think about the person we are, everything goes back to the brain. A single organ runs our memories, thoughts, and the ability to express ourselves.
Are you a great quarterback? Physical endurance aside, it’s your brain that allows you to make quick judgments on the field, throw a pass just right, put that perfect spin on the ball.
Are you a writer? Your brain sends the messages to your fingertips to type. It houses the imagination it takes to create a story.
Are you a child? Your brain is continuously developing. Social skills, navigating middle school, learning what you’re good at and what you love all come back to the brain.
