Descrip­tion: Train­ing to com­pete at the 2010 Win­ter Olympics, Kevin suf­fered severe trau­mat­ic brain injury from a 2009 acci­dent in Park City, Utah. His tight-knit Ver­mont fam­i­ly flew to his side, and togeth­er they began an inten­sive process of try­ing to reha­bil­i­tate him and help him rebuild his per­ma­nent­ly dam­aged life. Kevin’s deter­mi­na­tion and the tire­less sup­port of fam­i­ly and friends kept him focused on recov­ery. But when he insist­ed he want­ed to return to the sport he loved, his fam­i­ly object­ed.
