THE STORY:

CAN Recover's mission is to provide necessary support to student-athletes undergoing a prolonged concussion recovery from the perspective of other student-athletes who have experienced it first hand, educate the community to create a healthy recovering environment, and advance the clinical efforts to understand traumatic brain injuries in young athletes.  

I joined the CAN Recover team in October following a 6-month recovery from a concussion I sustained while playing ice hockey.  After dealing with the headaches, neck pain, dizziness, nausea, and frustration for several months, I started talking with Aaron, Colleen, and others who had been through prolonged concussion recoveries before. Those conversations were a turning point in my recovery - helping me find a great doctor and helping reduce my frustration by being able to talk with others who knew what I was going through.

Prolonged concussion recoveries can be extremely difficult for athletes that are used to the more linear and fixed recovery timelines of broken bones, tears, sprains, and strains. Talking with others who had been through it and reminding myself to take it one day at a time, be honest about my symptoms, and always put my health first helped a great deal in my recovery.

I'm excited to be a member of the CAN Recover team and to have the opportunity to help others who are dealing with prolonged recoveries. For more information on our mission and how you can help, see our website.

 

CAN Recover Foundation, Inc. wrote -

Our goal this holiday season is to raise $3,000 in order to develop and launch our new online store in 2016.  Spreading awareness of our mission and network is a key part of what we do.  Additionally, we are developing a support model in order to provide handout material to schools, doctors, and individuals.  These initiatives will help CAN Recover reach more student-athletes and parents in need of support.
