Having a brain injury can be a very disastrous and sorrowful experience, but one has to realise that with proper care and counselling, there is life after brain injury. Take Justin Miles, for example, he’s an adventurous man proving that life goes on after ABI.
Justin had a severe brain injury in 1999, but he came to the realisation that there is life after brain injury, and now he does various activities to encourage other sufferers of brain injury that life does not have to come to a standstill because of the incident.
In his words, he says “I haven’t let what happened to me beat me and I want other people who have suffered or who are suffering from brain injuries to never just accept them. You need to make happen what you want to happen – it’s tough, but improvements can be made and there is always hope.”
Justin had the care and counselling which aided his recovery. This is the kind of care, love and counselling also offered by BRAINBOX. We provide all the support one needs to aid recovery process. And just like Justin said, we help people realise that despite the fact that they might have a brain injury, their future is still as bright as ever. We work with the theme “Bright Youths…Our Passion…Bright Future”.
Your future is still bright despite the incident.
