Second Chance Story
Second Chance Story is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Florida. In 2007, the Founder of Second Chance Story, Ryan Troutman was involved in a nearly fatal car accident that left him with a traumatic brain injury. Over the years, Ryan has searched for ways to give back to the community that saved his life.
In 2016, Ryan published his book Second Chance and through his book, Ryan was able to share his story and give hope to others living with a traumatic brain injury. As Ryan continued speaking about the challenges he has faced and the ways that he has recovered, he became proud of his story and all that he has accomplished. That is a feeling Ryan believes everyone deserves.
Forming Second Chance Story has given Ryan the opportunity to help others living with a brain injury the same way he has helped himself. Sharing the courageous stories of others helps inspire individuals to be proud of the victories they’ve had in their own recovery. It gives individuals living with a brain injury the ability to use their story as a driving force behind all of the great things they will do with their second chance at life.
