San Diego Brain Injury Foundation shared NBC Nightly News's video.

In true San Diego fashion...the Padres stepped up to the plate to help a former player stay a Padre for life when he suffered a brain injury from a heart attack.

Facebook Picture
NBC Nightly News

“Padre for life”: Former San Diego Padres prospect Matt LaChappa suffered a massive heart attack while warming up for a game in 1996. As a result of the heart attack, LaChappa was left with a debilitating brain injury. But the Padres never left his side. They’ve renewed his minor league contract every year since so he could have quality health insurance. NBC’s Joe Fryer reports tonight. http://nbcnews.to/1E2VwPZ

Watch the full report: http://nbcnews.to/1ODiWwU

Crystal Marie Such a great story!!,

ABI’s result in visual deficits nearly 20% of the time. Here are some recent developments in the field, which may hold promise for some. All are entirely non-invasive, and apparently safe.
None of these therapies are a panacea. They will, at best, produce marginal gains in vision. But, our son’s Bart’s gains allowed him to read across a page and to navigate without being blind-sided. That is better than a stick in the eye. (Sorry, got to keep a sense of humor, especially faced with TBI).

An emerging novel research study on visual field restoration based on concepts of neuroplasticity, being conducted at University of Rochester in New York State, under the direction of Krystel R. Huxlin, Ph.D.

Improved Visual Acuity at any age: Promising work at University of Califormian, Riverside

Finally, an oldie, but goodie: Son Bart shown on NBC Nightly News in 2008. He followed Nova Vision's Vision Restoration Therapy (VRT) which succeeded in restoring roughly 8% of his field of vision.(He has hemaniopsia as a result a severe TBI)
