If you are wondering why the Sarah Jane Brain Foundation and friends are devoting day and night to help children and young adults who suffer from the #1 leading cause of death and disability, Please take just 5 minutes out and read my story then share your thoughts with as many people as you can, by doing this you will raise awareness of TBI and in turn someone else who experiences this could get the help and understanding they so deserve.
