A Message From Troy
On August 11, 2003 at age 16, I was involved in a car crash that forever changed my life. I suffered many injuries that day, none more significant than my acquired brain injury. Whether it’s depression, anxiety, bouts of OCD, etc. - running seems to be the one thing that can ease my mind.
A brain injury can be a very complex injury, and for the person who suffers, it can be all the worse. For example, it took me nearly eight years to realize I was a ‘survivor’ and not a victim. Following years of ongoing therapy and unconditional love from my family and friends, I’m finally able to look in the mirror and see a survivor looking back.
It has been a long journey, and there’s still a ways to go, but I believe if we work together, we can make this transition much more manageable. I am committed to doing my best to ensure no one has to live through the troubles I have had along the way, and to make sure there’s enough support available to help survivors and their loved ones through this emotional transition.
This journey is no longer about me, but about everyone else. This is a movement for positive change. Let’s create HOPE for tomorrow, by taking action today.
