Participant Page: “Defeating Dizziness”
Many people don't realize that the vestibular system can be impaired when they sustain a head injury like a concussion. The effects of dizziness and imbalance from injury can go misdiagnosed or even disregarded and can last much longer than more well-known concussion symptoms, which was my case. By not addressing the vestibular system, someone you care about can go many months, even years feeling lost like I did.
Please help to bring awareness and to raise funds for Defeating Dizziness one donation at a time.
I'm passionate about making sure that young athletes who play sports receive the care they need if they suffer from a concussion, and that healthcare professionals can identify the vestibular component of their injury and get them on the road to recovery. I'm working with VEDA to spread awareness, and I need your help.
A donation of any amount is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your support,
Honorary Chairman - Balance Awareness Week
