Brain injury is the leading cause of death for people ages 1-44 years old
Charleston, SC (PRWEB) October 01, 2014
On September 30, 2014, My Positive Perspective host Jason Deierlein aired an episode in which he appeared in by himself. The episode announced an addition to the mypositiveperspective.com website. After revealing that the episode was sponsored by the South Carolina Brain Injury Alliance, Deierlein began the episode by saying, “Today, I would like to announce a new feature to my website. In alliance with the group first giving, I have added a new page to the mypositiveperspective.com website. It is intended to raise money for victims of brain injury and provide funds to help with its research.”
Deierlein then continues, “Brain injury is no doubt a serious subject, one brain injury occurs every thirteen seconds in our country and it is the leading cause of death for people ages one to forty four.” Deierlein then continues, “I am a survivor of brain injury after suffering a serious car accident. Car accidents are the top cause of traumatic brain injury. I lost my best friend in the car accident I was in, and also lost my cousin in a car accident a year and a half ago, and then a few months ago, one of the technicians at Kinetic Hifi was also killed in a car accident.”
Deierlein concludes the episode by saying, “Car accidents most often happen when we are vulnerable, they occur when we are tired, during bad weather, or when we are in a hurry. I ask people to refrain from driving when we find ourselves in these situations. The magnitude of these brain injuries happening can’t be underestimated because they change one’s life forever.”
My Positive Perspective is a media outlet believing that improvement in our community will be best achieved by focusing on the good things happening in our world today. Having survived a near fatal car accident as a youth, a shift of perception forced one to have a mentality of always concentrating on the brighter sides of things. This was true, and in my book, Return From a Comatose Mind, this belief was put to the test. Appreciation for life was the biggest thing one took away from my brush with death, and it is because of that gives me such a huge desire to be helpful to many. My Positive Perspective is a way of overcoming challenges through positive thinking.
