I received a note from former employee Michael Coss this morning pointing me to a link in Vancouver’s paper “The Province”. I really felt compelled to post a little story to give Michael a huge “shout” for his courage to come back from a tragic incident just a few years ago. Michael’s family was basically told that he would be confined to a bed and likely never to be on his feet again. Just look at this story in the local paper in Vancouver that tells this triumphant achievement for a young man that had the courage to fight to come back. Cheers to you Michael, and all that you continue to do to raise awareness and funds for the Brain Injury Research Foundations. Thanks for continuing to share your story. @MolsonFerg

Michael Coss - Meet Michael
Michael started this foundation about one year ago after he was injured in a serious car accident in May 2006. The accident left him in a coma for 6 and 1/2 months. Michael awoke from the coma after 3 treatments of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and is currently re-learning how to walk. While in rehab, Michael decided to start his foundation which will assist others with and those affected by brain injuries as well as promote and help fund HBOT.
Michael – we’re proud of you…thanks for letting us share your story.
