The Fight Against Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is believed to be the leading undiagnosed injury in the United States. Victims can experience symptoms of confusion, loss of memory, slurred speech and seizures. Those living with TBI can struggle with its devastating effects for days, months, years or even for the rest of their lives. Regardless of age, anyone can suffer a detrimental brain injury, including: professional athletes, motorcyclists, children involved in team sports, military personnel and even senior citizens.
