Meet Anthony

Meet Anthony, a brain injury survivor who gives hope to all of us. After a severe brain injury that left him unsure of his own identity and life circumstances, Anthony started on a long and courageous rehabilitation journey – with a little help from his sister Anna, video games, and his faith.

Despite many challenges along the way, Anthony was able to relearn the essentials of life and enjoy simple pleasures once again. Highlights from his recovery including winning five championships alongside his best friend with the Queensway Canadians Hockey Team. He even earned the nickname “Kick A$$ Anthony”.

Through the support of Mind Forward, Anthony has regained his independence and is able to maintain a positive outlook on life. His advice to others in recovery is to “relax, take it easy, and live life to the fullest”.

Those of us who have had the pleasure of working with Anthony know that he never forgets a birthday and is an avid Toronto Maple Leafs fan. Whether he’s playing a game of hangman or watching his favourite episode of Star Wars or Happy Days, Anthony continues to remind us of the human spirit’s capacity to overcome and thrive.
