As most of my friends and family know, I went through a prolonged concussion recovery for 6 months in 2014. I had many of the symptoms of post-concussion syndrome including headaches, dizziness, balance problems, and difficulty focusing. I saw many medical professionals for treatment, and at times I wondered if I was ever going to recover. I had the amazing support from my family, teammates, and friends during this difficult time. I am passionate about the work of CAN Recover because I want other student athletes to know they are not alone in their recovery. I believe fundraising for the support model is great because student athletes, parents, and support systems can receive more information about the emotional side of concussions.
