Healing From Brain Injury

Photo provided by family

Life can change in an instant. That is what happened to Purnell after being injured while crossing the street. As a result, Purnell had to relearn everything,  including how to walk, talk and eat. Through very hard work with his therapists at Kennedy Krieger Institute and his own determination, today Purnell is a typical teenager looking forward to his junior prom. In recognition of Brain Injury Awareness Month, we are inspired by patients like Purnell who have overcome so much.
