In 1996 Greg Noack received his calling the hard way, suffering a traumatic brain injury from a violent assault. He went through a year of rehabilitation and recovery and in the process found his life's mission - to help others who experience brain injury.
In Collateral Damage: When Caregivers No Longer Care, Greg shares the struggles he endured when he was first discharged from hospital, re-entering society and being employed in the rehabilitation of those who suffered a brain injury.
Greg shares and reflects on his work experiences and questions what has changed in health care from when he rehabilitated. He also writes about helping his father during his battle with lung cancer and the frustrations with his father's treatment.
Hopefully by sharing his story Greg can educate and empower those who require health care so that they and their loved ones do not become collateral damage due to those who no longer care.
Greg Noack lives and works in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He has been employed in the field of neurorehabilitation and research in downtown Toronto for over 20 years. He likes to stay active by running, having completed eight marathons. He loves spending time with friends and family, especially his mother. He enjoys being a proud uncle to his four nieces and nephew.
