Do you know what it’s like to feel the weight of the world on your shoulders? Max does.
Max was just a high school student when he was attacked by an assailant and knocked to the ground. His head hit the ground hard, and while he did not know it yet, he had suffered a major concussion.
You can imagine the fear that Max felt when he could not tell the hospital where he lived.
Doctors told Max he would recover soon. Then they said in a few months he would feel better. Then one doctor told Max not to expect to recover; Max might have to live with a brain injury forever.
You know that’s not true – people can recover from brain injury. Fortunately, Max found the Vancouver Brain Injury Association.
You know in this world, some things are just worth fighting for.
People you might know, and other people like you, provided support groups and therapy sessions for people like Max. You will be glad to know Max reclaimed his life. Today, Max helps brain injury survivors across Metro Vancouver.
Thanks to people like you, Max is no longer alone.
Did you know concussions are often undiagnosed or underdiagnosed? People who experience a concussion face a difficult recovery period and are often unable to work or function as well as they once did.
In Vancouver, there are no shortage of brain injury survivors in need of aid, and each story is different. With the onset of COVID-19, these people are in need of support now more than ever. You alone can make the difference.
