Victim Fights For More Help for Traumatic Brain Injury Victims

A traumatic brain injury advocate that has dedicated her life to helping brain injury victims says that there is not nearly enough help available to these victims. This advocate suffered from a fall that close to 40 years ago that left her in a coma for two weeks and she spent the next 16 years recovering. Using her experience as an example, she talks about how the help for traumatic brain injury victims is lacking.

This traumatic brain injury advocate has written a book about her road to recovery and to try to help out other victims suffering from traumatic brain injuries the care they need in order to get better.
