Charleston, SC (PRWEB) January 22, 2013
On January 26, 2013, the South Carolina Brain Injury Alliance will be hosting their annual Shuck A Rama Event. The event is an oyster roast designed to raise funds for victims of brain injury and their family members. Brain injury is the leading cause of death for people under the age of 45. A traumatic brain injury occurs once every nine seconds in the United States. These statistics alone are enough to let one believe that this matter does not receive enough attention.
My Positive Perspective founder and host Jason Deierlein says, “The statistics are alarming, there are ways of preventing brain injury that are not practiced as much as they should be.” Deierlein, a brain injury victim himself after a 1995 car accident, wants to insure people that the real focus of the event is really more about what you should do after a brain injury rather than preventing something that have already happened. Deierlein explains, “I have always lived by the motto that what defines you is how you respond to adversity, not just the fact that adversity has occurred.”
The 2013 South Carolina Brain Injury Alliance event will be held on Saturday, January 26, 2013, at Gold Bug Island at 5 o’clock. Gold Bug Island is located at 1560 Ben Sawyer Blvd. Mount Pleasant, SC. The event will bring together many different brain injury survivors throughout the state. Deierlein greatly encourages all brain injury survivors to come saying, “Brain Injury can change you forever, and because of that, some people are ashamed of that. For people that have this concern, do not be, not here. This may be your first step at overcoming a brain injury, so do not be afraid to stand up to it.”
My Positive Perspective is an internet talk show created for the purposes of overcoming adversity. We educate and inspire in many different ways and talk about different types of obstacles, but the ultimate goal of this business is to spread positively and strengthen wherever there is a weakness or tragedy to overcome. I myself survived a car accident, coma, and painful rehabilitation. I consider myself lucky to be here and providing the public with this free service. This company is kind of my gift to myself for achieving. The one thing you never lose after surviving a tragedy is desire to help.
