My name is Craig Phillips and I would like to be of service to both you and the individuals that you serve.
I am an individual living with the impact of a brain injury that occurred when I was 10 years old in 1967, nearly 50 years ago. I sustained an open and depressed skull fracture, right frontal lobe damage, a severe brain bruise with brain stem involvement.
