J. J. Yates’ Story

It was 2:30am I had just finished a gig with my band. The last thing I remember is pulling to the side of the road because I was having car trouble, When I came to, I realized my truck, cell phone and wallet had all been stolen. I had been mugged and violently beaten.

I was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury due to blunt force trauma. After a stay at both University of Cincinnati Medical Center and a nursing home, I was transferred to Drake. The people there are just phenomenal! They do their prefessional jobs well, and they have the compassion you need to get well. Today, I’m living independently and playing drums again.
