  1. I have had a serious head injury playing soccer in college and have been told that I have a frontal lobe injury. I am interested if BU would be interested in seeing me. I live on Cape Cod and could get to your Lab.

    Thank you

  2. I have a 35 year old son who played high school football (center). In his senior year, he was hospitalized 5 times with “concussions”, 2 of which required overnight stays.
    He has slowly lost cognitive skills, crazy mood swings, very inappropriate behavior, can’t spell or construct reasonable sentences, has broken letters when writing and can’t hold a normal conversation or a job. He is deteriorating at a rate that is noticeable from week to week.
    Is there a possibility that he could see someone and/or have the scan to help us? We’re getting desperate . Maybe someone closer or we could come to you. I have a friend who is a neurologist here that maybe you could work through. She is willing. We live on the Mississippi gulf coast.
