Portland event focuses on surviving brain injuries
PORTLAND (WGME) - An event in Portland Tuesday focused on surviving brain injuries and sharing stories of success.
The event at the New England Rehabilitation Hospital of Portland, called "You Can Get There From Here," celebrates brain injury awareness month with survivor's inspirational stories.
More than 12 million Americans live with the impact of an acquired brain injury, which includes physical disability, loss of employment and in many cases loss of a sense of self.
The New England Rehabilitation Hospital of Portland is Maine's only freestanding acute rehabilitation hospital.
