Holly’s 4th concussion was sustained in May 2019 while playing AFL and has affected many areas of her life since then, including sport and school. Holly, and her dad Mike, describe how different Holly’s recovery has been following her most recent concussion, in comparison to her three previous concussions.
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury and is usually defined as a ‘mild’ brain injury in terms of severity. However, as Holly’s Story shows, even mild brain injury can cause long-term cognitive problems that affect a person’s ability to perform daily activities.
'Holly's Story' is a video premiere event and will be available to view on the BIAT Facebook page from 3:00pm onwards on Wednesday 19 August.
The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania worked with Domin8 Media to produce ‘Holly’s Story’.
