Brady’s Ongoing Recovery from Anoxic Brain Injury
At 20 years old, Brady suffered an anoxic brain injury, where brain cells die from lack of oxygen. After six weeks in a coma, he opened his eyes, but could not talk, let alone stand.  While he was able to regain his speech he was restricted to a wheelchair.  Brady’s first big challenge during therapy was to stand.
