Resilience Award: Two Teens Fight Post-Concussion Syndrome

Posted: 11/15/17

Noah Bond from Hull, Georgia struggled through Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS) symptoms that included daily headaches, severe memory loss and feelings of isolation. Esther Lovett from Cambridge, Massachusetts missed her entire junior year of high school because her symptoms were so bad. Both Noah and Esther fought through their symptoms courageously, and have made it their mission to help others with PCS. The Concussion Legacy Foundation honored both Noah and Esther with the Resilience Award at the 2017 Concussion Legacy Gala. Watch the heartfelt stories of the Lovett and Bond families.
