Please let me introduce myself. My name is Craig J. Phillips. I am a traumatic brain injury survivor, a master’s level rehabilitation counselor, a peer mentor, an advocate, a motivational and inspirational speaker and an internationally published author. On February 6, 2007 at the encouragement of a professional friend I created *Second Chance to Live* to share my experience, strength and hope.

I experienced an open skull fracture with right frontal lobe damage and a severe brain contusion when I was 10 years old. I remained in a coma for 3 weeks.

For insight into my professional experience please read my Professionals Page. You may also gain further insight into my journey by reading my About Page. Although I was not expected to live the night of the car accident in 1967, or succeed beyond high school academically I went onto obtain both my undergraduate and graduate degrees.
