Oppold had a cerebral aneurysm that required a lengthy surgery, during which he had a stroke that caused paralysis. Oppold’s memoir tells of his challenging attempts to bring his life back to what it had been . . . marked, along the way, by haircuts. Oppold’s determination has overcome his disability in many ways.
This peer-led support group is free and open to the public. Individuals with TBI, their loved ones, and caregivers are welcome.
The Traumatic Brain Injury Support Group meets monthly, hosted by Northfield Hospital + Clinics. Meetings are on the first Thursday of every month, from 7:00 – 8:00 pm. You can meet and share with others with TBI and receive educational, social and emotional support. Members develop relationships with others who have had similar experiences; learn from others’ strategies and successes; and share social time together.
