DJ is the story of a survivor injured on a barge, during a hurricane in Florida. Despite the severity of the blow to his head when it was bounced off the underside of a bridge by a swell, DJ kept working for several hours after the initial injury. Many hours later, he was fortunate enough to have company when his neurological functions started shutting down as a result of an escalating subarachnoid hemorrhage, not diagnosed until 12 hours after his injury. His trauma care was complicated by the emergency of the hurricane, significantly delaying his treatment. DJ’s recovery has been good, but has left him disabled, despite cognitive strengths. He has become a leader of the brain injury community on Facebook.

DJ is another survivor who has benefitted from regular exercise, in his case his bicycling.
