Sean Glanvill is a 13 year old boy that attends my church. He has suffered from Traumatic Brain Injury
On May 16, 2007, during his daily commute to school, 12 year old Sean Glanvill was involved in a single car accident. The truck he was in lost control and struck a tree hitting the side where Sean was seated (buckled in) – causing severe trauma to his head. At Children’s Hospital in St Louis, Sean underwent immediate surgery to remove fractures of his skull and removal of most of the top and right side of the skull to allow for swelling. In addition to massive head trauma, he has fractures behind the sinus and major damage to his right eye. Sean was given only a 1% chance of survival on the day of his accident, but he is battling through to potential recovery despite his traumatic injury.
His accident has brought to light the fact that so little is known about the brain today and funding is needed to further this critical research to help future survivors of TBI like Sean
Sean is still battling after 9 months in the intensive care unit of Children's Hospital in St. Louis. Missouri. For updates on Sean's battle visit CarePages.
