      • Update: Help for Abuse Survivors with Brain Injuries


        from Ellen Paul / Added

        45 Plays / / 0 Comments

        Howdy! I'm here again to bring you another brief update about how your donation can make a big difference, not only here and now for me, but for others. You may have heard about NFL and even high school football players suffering multiple concussions and, later in life, suffering the effects. Some even have a more dramatic and frightening disease: CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy. This is a repetitive brain injury disease and currently is diagnosed post-mortem (only after you die). What ISN'T happening is studies surrounding children who suffered long-term, very severe physical abuse--abuse without *any padding*. Please, think about that for a moment. NO PADDING WHATSOEVER. I'm getting help now in the hopes that there is still plasticity left for work-arounds; no 41 year old should have this much brain difficulty, per my neurologist. Your donation will help me stick with getting the help I need and, in turn, will help me shine a light on this shameful condition for what must be countless others. I will continue to fight for former victims, now survivors, and help them have the brightest futures possible with my research and advocacy. Thank you for your time and donations!!

            Traumatic brain injury is a major cause of death and disability in this country. The CDC reports that 138 people in the U.S. die every day from an injury that involves one. The combination of speed and force often causes catastrophic damage. “There is a little bit of space in there, but the brain basically comes to an abrupt stop up against the skull,” explains Lee Memorial Health System neurosurgeon Dean Lin. When you break it down- falls are the leading cause of traumatic head injury- in particular in children and older adults. But it’s accidents- car versus car, versus bike, versus motorcycle or pedestrian that claims the most lives in people under age 24. “The skull remains a hard, solid cave. It’s not expanding anywhere, so those are the patients that need to go to surgery frequently and have some of the skull removed. And then sometimes that will save them,” says Dr. Lin. Removing a section of skull gives the brain room to expand and hopefully lowers pressure within. Other than monitoring and looking out for blood clots, there is no ‘miracle treatment’. The biggest impact on this type of injury- is prevention. Wearing a seatbelt has a huge impact in surviving a crash. Removing hazards in the home can prevent accidental falls. Key in avoiding sports-related head injuries: do not dive in water less than 12 feet deep. Finally, athletes should always play it safe- by wearing the proper protective head gear. “They need to understand how potentially catastrophic the consequences could be,” says Dr. Lin.

              • This Beats A Coma: From Brain Injury to XC Bicycle Tour

                19 Plays / / 0 Comments

                While battling strong gusts of wind on a desolate, hilly highway in central Wyoming, Doug Markgraf slowed his bicycle to a stop and pulled a marker from his bag. In large letters he scrawled "This Beats A Coma" across his sunburnt forearm. He was 19 days into a 56 day journey across America, and the phrase reminded him why. Five years earlier, Doug was involved in a hit-and-run accident while riding his bicycle in a bike lane in West Philadelphia. In the collision he shattered bones, helmet, and bicycle – and suffered a severe traumatic brain injury. As Doug lay in a coma for half a month, doctors refused to acknowledge that his condition would allow a complete recovery. The last thing they ever expected was that he would awaken, recover, and return to the bike. But he did. "This Beats A Coma" tells the story of a young man's journey from coma to an inspiring cross-country bicycle trek. It reflects on the difficulties faced by a traumatic brain injury survivor and documents the struggles to return to a norm, independent life. It's a story about hope, overcoming debilitating setbacks, and achieving amazing things. Learn more at www.thisbeatsacoma.com or dougtrails.wordpress.com Directed & Edited by Scott Richardson

The Diamondbacks joined forces with Boys of Summer to create this special event to give TBI victims an opportunity to use the mental strategy of baseball and enjoyment of the All-American sport to "get away" from daily routine of physical therapy and an opportunity to meet with others who share similar struggles of dealing with crowds and noise (among other difficulties) to strengthen their mental capacities, overcome fear, and get back to daily life!

                      The Boys of Summer TBI Foundation was started out of the personal struggle of Ron Day to recover from a life-altering construction accident. Ron discovered the cognitive thinking used during the strategy of baseball helped him to focus and regain meaningful function. His mission now is to spread this concept of mental rehabilitation using the game of baseball to help military and others who are wrestling the "demons of despair" and overcoming traumatic brain injury!!!
