Concussionconnection.com is an online resource dedicated to Educating and Supporting Athletes and their Parents through the Concussion Crisis.

Between the two founders, Lauren and Samantha, they have suffered approximately 16 concussions throughout their sport careers.  It would be years of dealing with the unending effects of multiple concussions before what would seem like “fate” brought these two together to create Concussionconnection.com 

5 years after her 10th Concussion, Lauren began blogging about living a life with Post Concussion Syndrome and the effects of multiple concussions sustained over the years.  Never intending for anyone to read the blog, Lauren heard from Samantha who shared a similar story of living with the effects of multiple concussions through a soccer career of her own.

Born a year apart, Lauren and Samantha would discover a friendship based on an understanding that nobody should ever have with someone else.  It was through the understanding of one another and the friendship that developed that a need would present itself in the sports world.With Concussion Awareness and Education at an all-time high, there’s a piece of the concussion puzzle that’s still missing and it was in the discovery of a new friendship that Lauren and Samantha understood what it was.
