Tyler speaks of his personal experiences that stem from
the horrific crash that he, his twin brother, and younger sister were victims of.
Coming from someone who faces the day to day struggles of living
with a traumatic brain injury. At age 23, after nine years of frustration and confusion,
Tyler began to study his brain and why he is the way he is.
Something Tyler became all to familiar with at twenty four years old. A night of Fun
for four acquaintances quickly spiraled out of control and became a moment
that neither of them will ever forget. Tyler Says, ” If I could change that night I would in a heartbeat. I would
have listened to my wife and left after the very first time I was verbally and physically bullied
for the way I walk. I didn’t though…”. Come listen to Tyler’s story of courage, fear, and the strength
that it took to fully accept what happened during that painful experience.

At 14, Tyler Presnell, his twin brother and his younger sister were in a violent car wreck, passengers in a car driven by a close family friend. That friend was 16 and had been licensed less than a week. The crash nearly killed Tyler, but it did not kill his spirit. Having gone through multiple surgeries, stints in intensive care, constant pain and months in a wheel-chair, Tyler knew that he had an important message to share. His speaking career started over ten years ago while he was still a patient in the intensive care unit at Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland, Oregon. Tyler speaks of his family, his lifelong recovery and the subsequent pain, and the challenge of living each day with over 80 percent of his short-term memory gone.
