Nearly all survivors of a traumatic head injury and their families have one complaint: There is very little written that explains head injury in clear, easy to understand language. Most say the available material is too medical or too difficult to read.

The goal of this online book is to better prepare the head injured person and family for the long road ahead. This book has been a life accomplishment. I have been writing this off and on for over 20 years. I pray to read this will enlighten the general population of what we Head Injured may experience. May this support the injured, families, friends and all people involved with Head Injuries.

I am happy to say that I have lived through a devastating Closed Head Injury in 1986. Today I live the life of a healthy individual and I appreciate every minute God gives to me.
