The impact of an improperly diagnosed head injury is detailed by Pattiann Berton of IMPACTED, INC. She tells the unbelievable story her son, Patrick, and a very disconnected road to proper diagnosis, the consequences of this delay in diagnosis as well as Patrick’s treatment and ongoing treatment. This second video describes the beginning of Patrick’s physical decline. He began to suffer weakness, loss of balance and sensitivity to sight, sound and smell.

Adding to Patrick’s physical decline are visual, cognitive and memory issues.

// Part 3 of a 7 Part Series //
Pattiann continues to outline Patrick’s worsening symptoms and a continued search for answers. This third video describes his ongoing physical decline as well as visual, cognitive and memory issues. A trip to Cleveland Clinic supports the theory that this could be related to an infection.

The difficult reality of physical decline combined with vision impairment is investigated.

// Part 4 of a 7 Part Series//
Patrick’s degenerating physical condition takes the family on a journey to specialists in genetics and rare diseases with no answers. Finally, it’s his vision impairment that led them from neurology to ophthalmology. A special vision therapist provides hope and tools for Patrick to make some progress forward.

A continued search for answers stresses the entire Berton family, but faith provides comfort.

// Part 5 of a 7 Part Series //
As Pattiann travels to every major medical center possible to find answers to unlock what’s happening with Patrick, the family is stressed. Tom takes a new position with his company so he can travel less and be home with their three younger boys. The family’s faith and the steady guidance of Father Carmen D’Amico pulled them through this difficult time.
