Neil, one of our Peer Visitors at Shepherd Center and Grady Hospital, suffered a severe traumatic brain injury right after he had "passed the bar exam" to become a practicing attorney. Months of hospitals and rehabilitation followed, and he is back at work as an attorney.
In Neil's own words, "This is the story of a boy robbed of what he knew about himself who set out to learn enough to want to live the life in front of him."
