At age 14, Derrick Tennant, was pursuing his dream for acareer in sports when one evening in 1985 he laid down and didnot wake up for three days.
He had undergone whatdoctors would later term “random bleeding from point ‘x’ for anunknown reason”. Paralyzed and in a coma, Derrick underwentbrain surgery from which he became unable to move the left side ofhis body. It would take years of therapy to re-learn the basicslike walking, talking and simple daily tasks. Derrick is stillunable to use his left arm and he walks with a limp, but he haslearned a lot through this process.
and much, much more!
