Hilary from North Carolina

I am currently caring for my brother Stephen. About 4 years ago he was injured at work and has severe brain injuries. He is in a wheelchair and needs help remembering to take his medicine and doing everyday tasks. When it first happened he was in really bad shape. He couldn't do hardly anything by himself. He has improved significantly in the last 4 years. He unfortunately will never be able to drive again. It's been somewhat difficult adjusting my life around him but we have made it work. I am so grateful that he's still here today. While it was an unfortunate thing to happen he is still alive with his family.
