Sidney Crosby interview again focuses attention on Brain Injury Victims

Peter Mansbridge’s “One on One” Interview with Sidney Crosby once again reminded Canadians of the challenges faced by victims of traumatic brain injury. Sidney discussed his difficult recovery and described being unable to do basic things like read or watch tv. He was frustrated by his injury and even wondered whether he would be unable to return to professional hockey.

The media attention focussed on Sidney’s story helps to bring public awareness to the experience of brain injury victims. So often, victims feel misunderstood, due to the varied nature of symptoms. As Sidney stated “It’s a hard one to understand unless you’ve gone through it.”

Local brain injury survivors looking for support may wish to contact our local brain injury association. Later this month, a number of programs are starting in Burlington and elsewhere in the Halton region. Details regarding support groups can be found at here.

Sidney is preparing to start his ninth NHL season and we hope that he will continue to be symptom-free and will play well!
