New York State Brain Injury Association Fundraising Dance

Erika Kirtoglou of Spiegeltown was just 17-years-old when her car collided with another head-on. She was thrown from the car and landed head first into a telephone pole.

Doctors never expected her to even speak or walk again, but she has definitely defied the odds. She is a writer, dancer, and a traumatic brain injury survivor. Now she's dancing her way to make others aware that there is hope for traumatic brain injuries.

On Saturday, March 25, 2006, a fundraiser to benefit the Brain Injury Association of New York State is being hosted by Erika, her family and friends.
