In 1987 Allison was hit by a car suffering a traumatic brain injury. She has since recovered but has a physical disability and trouble with her speech. Allison volunteers two days per week at our local homeless shelter she also volunteers at the local veterans hospital doing bingo with our veterans. Allison is an inspiration to me. She doesn't let anything hold her back. I met Allison in July of 2006 and have seen her strong will in action, achieving everything she sets out to do. After her brain injury, she went on to graduate high school and now has a college degree. She has shown me that no matter what happens, you can do anything you set your mind to.
