I hope you are all doing well. I am doing well. In August of 1967, I sustained an open skull fracture, a depressed skull fracture, and a severe traumatic brain injury.
I remained in a coma for 3 weeks with right frontal lobe damage, a severe brain bruise with brain stem involvement.
Over the past 50 years, I have learned lessons.

During the past 10 years I have shared what I have learned through a series of articles, video presentations and eBooks written, as published on Second Chance to Live.

I have done so to increase my right and left brain’s, as well as the right and left-side of my body capacity to perform. Please click on the below link to discover what I learned that enhances my recovery process:
