Day 8 Chris Lynch

Remember!!  The 31 Day TBI Challenge for CHANGE during March, Brain Injury Awareness Month, consists of just two parts:

 1.)    Please learn something new about TBI every day.  We will be posting an article daily on our Facebook and website pages to make it easy for you to learn. Today’s article is below.

 2.)    Help facilitate CHANGE by partnering with The Arms Forces by assisting us in continuing our efforts for invisibly wounded veterans by collecting your CHANGE daily and at the end of March donating the money to The Arms Forces. (contact information below) Create a jar and label it:

“The Arms Forces CHANGE for TBI” and put it out where you and others will see it.  When someone asks you what it is all about, share with them a bit about what you have learned about TBI.  Share stories of the people you will learn about through our posts on Facebook and how their lives have been forever changed by their injuries.

If collecting change every day is not your thing then be a part of the CHANGE by making a donation to The Arms Forces through our website or by mailing a check to the address below.

Day 8 Article- Chris Lynch

Today, I want to share with you a young man who is nothing short of amazing!  Chris Lynch and I met on Facebook.  We became good friends!  You can learn a lot about Chris from his website through the link below.  His story on the site stops around 2008.  But, the story of Chris’ life post TBI does not.  Chris still struggles with many challenges.  Yet, this man brings so much joy, inpsiration, hope and knowledge to others through his postings!

Chris is keenly aware of the areas in his life that he wants to continue working on and he never gives up being not just a better TBI survivor, but a better man.  His mom has been a constant source of strength for him since his injuries in July 2000.  Family is important to Chris.  Being independent is important to him.  Making a difference in this world is important to him.

As you read the story of Chris, his injuries and his recovery from TBI that he and his mom worked together on through his website, I know you will find a new friend that you will treasure.  I sure know I have!!!  I love you Chris!

With open arms,

Pam Hays
