Jimmy recently suffered a life-changing traumatic brain injury following a motorcycle accident. Jimmy suffered three distinct brain hemorrhages in his frontal and temporal lobes. We are still learning the full range and extent of these injuries and how they will impact his future. Jimmy is now home after having spent time in the surgical ICU and in-patient rehabilitation hospital.
Before the accident Jimmy worked as a commercial roofer. He traveled to many parts of the world for his work including Sri Lanka, the American Embassies in Jordan and Panama and even Guantanamo Bay. Jimmy is optimistic about returning to a productive and fulfilling life filled with hard work, good friends and lots of love. However, his employer terminated his employment about six weeks after the accident. He now faces the additional costs of COBRA or private health insurance in addition to his many medical expenses.

October 15. Thank you to all for your support and kindness. Jimmy gets stronger everyday. We had a good visit with doctor last week. Jimmy’s blood pressure is finally up where it should be at a healthy 109 over 59! We are continuing on the same medications which have had a definite positive impact.
