Spending weeks in a coma, and months in a hospital in the UK following the accident which almost took his life. He had broken his hip, pelvis and foot. He had broken bones in his face and lost several teeth. Additionally, he was blind in one eye and had an acquired brain injury.
Jack returned home and began to live in an Acquired Brain Injury Ireland assisted living service, to work towards the independent life he had previously lived.
Jack is one of the lucky ones. 19,000 people each year acquire a brain injury around the country with approximately 150,000 people living with one.
Jack’s life is not the life that he expected to be living as he entered his thirties but because of the kindness displayed by amazing people like you, Jack has the opportunity to rebuild his life and set new goals.
