Harry Carson Is a Survivor

New York Giants Hall of Fame linebacker Harry Carson was one of the most feared football players of his era.  However, behind that tough exterior he was terrified of the symptoms of brain injury which he experienced following many concussions on the playing field.  Harry was eventually able to confront his fears and is now a spokesman for the Brain Injury Association.

In this article from Sports Illustrated, Harry talks about his experiences with brain injury and how he made adjustments to his life in order to better manage his symptoms.  Though the article is almost 15 years old, it’s still just as relevant as a sincere and affecting portrait of the struggles faced by a brain injury survivor.
