Barry writes, “My son Casey is a Traumatic Brain Injury survivor from an auto accident that almost took his life…twice. Casey spent three months at St. Mary’s Med Center ICU.” Still in a coma, he was med flown to Shepherd Care in Atlanta where he spent the next three months before being flown back to St. Mary’s. “Soon after we were told that Casey is being discharged for home! What? Why? He is in a coma state, but stable. As loving parents, we were so scared! We are not doctors, nurses, therapists. What do we know about caring for a TBI loved one?”
This desperation is felt by every caregiver faced with such a daunting task. So many questions. Such uncertainty. And for many, financial stress.

Barry continues in his letter to CCH founder Owen O’Neill, “Casey is slowly getting better, more aware of his surroundings and responding back to me with eye blinks and thumbs up signs to communicate. I can’t wait until that day when I can introduce you to Casey and he can shake your hand.”
