Making it better together
Before September 1, 2012 – the day of the accident – Tim Davis's energies went toward the construction company he owned, playing the drums, golfing, and riding his motorcycle. But after a 30,000-pound steel truss fell on him, it was hard to live the life he once did. Tim suffered severe damage to his forearm, torn cartilage in his shoulder, a fractured spine, and a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Now, more than two years into his recovery, Tim has found a new outlet for his energy by giving back to HCMC and the people who he says "genuinely cared." Tim is partnering with our TBI Center to start a Peer Mentor Program. "I wish I had someone to talk to who had experienced what I had, and this program will allow patients to do that." With the support of our staff, Tim has transformed an unfortunate accident into an opportunity to make a difference.
