Ella's Story

Sunday, August 20, 2017

In the lead up to Brain Injury Awareness Week 2017, the Brain Injury Association of Tasmania, in conjunction with Domin8 Designs, spoke with Ella, a sixteen year old Tasmanian girl, and her mum, Traci-Jean, about the changes to their lives after Ella was hit in the head with a hockey ball 14 months earlier.

‘Ella’s Story’ is the first in a series of short videos BIAT is producing, featuring Tasmanians impacted by brain injury, and highlighting a broader community awareness message that brain injury can happen to ‘Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime’.
