The Brain Injury Acceptance Maturation Group welcomed friends and family to their annual  Capital District Brain Injury Awareness Day at at Tawasentha Park, saying, “We are brain injury survivors. We want to let people know that having a brain injury is not the worst thing that can happen to a family member or friend. We have changed a little, but we are the same people.” After today’s events we hope you realize that.”

Their keynote speaker was Dr. Peter Purcell, a gastroenterologist, who has been treating patients for the past 47 years. His daughter Victoria is a TBI survivor and served as the day’s Master of Ceremonies.

Over the course of the day, participants enjoyed a meal together and had many presentations, sharing  about how they spent their past year, and how the Coronavirus affected them. The day ended with a group singing the song “Not Giving Up” by Cristabelle Braden. Click here to watch a video of this performance.
