A story of brain injury in San Bernardino
Hello, my name is Peter Lawryniuk. When I was 7 years old, I was hit by a car while riding my bicycle. I was in a coma for 11 days, and when I awoke, I needed to relearn how to walk, talk, eat, use my muscles, everything over again.It was difficult at times. The doctors thought that I might not be able to walk or talk again, not even make it past grade 9. One doctor thought positive. I am 37 years old now, and I can walk, talk, drive a car, and I work and volunteer in a daycare for the past 9 years. I also volunteer at the YMCA, and work one day a week at an open doors place for people with different disabilities. I wrote a song called miracles, and sing it on YouTube. I would like to share it here if I may, and hope that it can inspire others to never give up.
