Bob Woodruff Opens Window into Brain-Injured World
Those of us who have had a brain injury or who care about someone with a brain injury may never get the chance to personally thank Bob Woodruff for accomplishing what no one has been able to do before -- make millions of people around the world aware of just how serious and pervasive this condition is. Thank you, Mr. Woodruff, for your courage in fighting back from the seriousness of your injury and also for honestly telling your story and standing up for the veterans of the Iraq War whose injuries (both their number and seriousness), until now, have been the Administration's dirty little secret.
We in the brain-injury community all know the numbers. We all know the numerous ways one's brain can be injured. We know more about the brain than we ever thought we would or would need to. And we certainly know how life-changing a brain injury can be, not only for the person suffering the injury, but also for the people who love and will care for him or her.
It was many weeks before ABC’s Bob Woodruff realized how lucky he was to survive a roadside bomb explosion in Iraq in January 2006. It took months for him to understand how lucky he was to recover as fully as he did.Here's ABC's intro into it's coverage of Bob Woodruff and his harrowing journey. Welcome back, Bob.
