A month after being hospitalized, Brad was transferred to St. Charles for acute rehabilitation. Here, he began re-learning everything he lost – how to walk, talk, eat, drink and think.
Eventually, Brad completed his inpatient rehabilitation and returned home. He continued his rehabilitation on an outpatient basis and, to the astonishment of many, he proudly graduated on time from high school with his NYS Regents diploma.
Today, Brad is a thriving young adult. He graduated from St. Joseph College with a degree in marketing, works as a DJ, volunteers and has a girlfriend. He tells people to never take life for granted. And, even when facing a difficult path in life, Brad urges, “Don’t lose faith in yourself and your ability to handle the bumps in the road.”
As a traumatic brain injury survivor, Brad offers this advice with the voice of experience.
