Survivor Shares Story for Brain Injury Walk (WJBF)

A tragic twist of fate left Troy Macisak unable to walk or talk. The former tennis professional went in for what was supposed to be a routine surgery – but a blood clot from a bruised finger caused him to have a stroke during the procedure. That was two years ago. Now’s he back on his feet and has regained his ability to speak – and he says he has a new purpose in life. Macisak wants to raise awareness about what it’s like to live and recover after a traumatic brain injury.
