My Ambition to Survive!
A child's life was torn apart; turning into a seemingly never-ending nightmare because of one persons mistake. The car accident he was in left his life like shattered glass on the ground. Disfigured face, causing judgment from other people. As he struggled through school, the "terrible teens" hit him harder than the car accident, overloaded with mental illness. After 32 years of shame and pain, now he is breaking the chains to survive. This is his story.
Brad is a 32 year survivor of a severe traumatic brain injury. He resides in Duluth, MN and enjoys support of his mom and two dogs.
