E50: Ryan Boyle- When the lights go out

Play

In Ryan's Boyle's own words:

In October of 2003, a black cloud seemed to hang over our family, which all culminated on a wet, fall day when I was hit and dragged by a pickup truck while riding a Big Wheel type toy at a friend’s birthday party. The medics who arrived on the scene were ready to pronounce me dead due to my horrendous injuries. The impact of the truck was directly to the back of my head; immediately I went into a coma.

Miraculously I did make it to the hospital and through emergency brain surgery where part of my cerebellum was removed, along with a large portion of the back of my skull. I also suffered many broken bones and other such injuries.

At the age of 10, I had to learn how to breathe, swallow, talk, eat, stand, sit, walk—everything—all over again. We take for granted that as babies we learn to do all of these things. It’s seemingly no big deal, but it was a huge deal for me. The fact is that medical experts know very little about how the brain works, which means they aren’t very good at knowing how to deal with a traumatic injury to it. The first doctor that saw me once I awakened from my coma quoted, "I am optimistic that Ryan will gain enough strength in his right hand to type." After this grim prognosis, my battle began. When the Lights Go Out tells about a young man’s desperate struggle to return to a regular life after sustaining a traumatic brain injury at the age of nine; it is both inspirational and moving. The fact that I wrote my first book as a freshmen honor student at St. Joseph High School in Trumbull, Connecticut is not only an amazing accomplishment in itself, but also one never thought possible by all of the experts.

When the Lights Go Out will take you from my catastrophic injuries and the battle against death to my continuing success story of recovery, now in Georgia. I not only explain the obvious physical challenges that I faced, but also the emotional and psychological challenges which, at times, were my greatest obstacles. I cover the critical role of faith and spirituality that gave me hope and strength to overcome tremendous challenges. I touch upon the healing power of friends, the inherent goodness of people to help when they are needed the most, and the importance of the support and love of my parents and brother as the foundation through all of my recovery. This inspirational story is a living example of how a horrific event can be overcome by measures of strength, determination and faith that you never knew you had within.

"From Tragedy to Triumph" -- With Paralympian, Ryan Boyle

In 2003 Ryan Boyle was dragged by a truck causing him immediately to go into a coma. After emergency brain surgery, where they removed a portion of his brain, it seemed like all hope was gone. Proof that miracles do happen, not only did he wake from the coma, but soon started a rigorous battle to learn how to stand, walk, eat, and everything else, all over again.

Through patience, hard work and lots of love and support, not only did Ryan defeat the odds, but he thrived through the recovery process and paved his way to become the youngest member of the USA Paralympic Road Cycling Team, winning a silver medal in the Rio 2016 games.

Now, in between his Paralympic training schedule (he resides at the Olympic Training Village in Colorado), going to school and finishing his second book, Ryan is devoted to helping others by sharing his story and offering advice to those experiencing hardships.

He recently graduated from Blessed Trinity High School in Roswell. When Ryan wrote his book When The Lights Go Out: A Boy Given a Second Chance at the end of his freshmen year of high school, he knew that he wanted to speak about his road to recovery and share his story of inspiration. He has spoken at his school in Georgia, at Clemson University, and at Safe America, where he went for his driving classes.

"This inspirational story describes how I had to overcome enormous obstacles. It is also about a spiritual journey of reflection, prayer, and many incomprehensible acts of faith. This is a living example of how a horrific event can be overcome by measures of strength, determination, and faith that you never knew you had within." -- ryan

Ryan Boyle is a man who makes the choice every day to live a positive, optimistic life. At age nine, he was riding a big wheel at a friend’s birthday party, and he was hit by a truck and dragged down the street. He head injury was so traumatic that they actually had to remove part of his cerebellum because it was so damaged. He awoke from a coma two months later and defied all odds by first, surviving. What happened after that is nothing short of a miracle. And yes, we talk about miracles on the show today. When Ryan was in 9th grade, he published a book called When the Lights Go Out: A Boy Given a Second Chance. I picked it up on Amazon and after you listen to this episode, I’m sure you’ll want to pick it up too. I literally couldn’t put it down.

Be sure that you listen to this episode with an open heart and open mind. It’s really tough to imagine you or someone you love going through something so traumatic. I’m so grateful that Ryan has the guts and vulnerability to share his journey. As he told me, “I’m an open book. You can ask me anything.” So I did.

Today we talk about:

Family & friends: Your support crew is everything
The accident
Coming out of a coma & facing the reality of a new life
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."
Some things you just have to live with - great advice for all of us
Miracles & Faith
Having a sense of humor during the tough stuff in life

We are surrounded by incredible, amazing, inspirational people around every corner. All we have to do is open our eyes. Ryan's final nugget sums it up perfectly, "Smile. Make eye contact. Be friendly. You don’t know what’s going on in anyone else’s lives." So be the best person you can be to spread love and light in this world.

Don’t forget to pick up Ryan’s book on Amazon - When the Lights Go Out: A boy Given a Second Chance. And cheer him on in the next Paralympics. He has such an incredible energy, I believe that whatever happens, he will be happy. Remember what his voicemail says, "I’m out making something of my life.” It’s time for us to do the same.

Ep. 104 "Beating Back Traumatic Brain Injury" With Paralympian Ryan Boyle,

Play
Read more
In October 2003, Ryan Boyle became a victim of traumatic brain injury (TBI). "I was hit and dragged by a pickup truck while riding a Big Wheel trike at a friend’s party. Emergency brain surgery saved my life, but I lost a portion of the back part of my brain. At the age of ten, I had to learn how to breathe, swallow, talk, eat, stand, sit, walk—everything— all over again."

Though Dr.'s told him he would be lucky if he were able to write with his hand again, Ryan proved him wrong. Today, Ryan is a super-star Paralympic athlete in the sport of cycling and because of his balance issue he rides a, yes you guessed it, a trike. He did use that hand again to write his own book titled, “When the Lights go Out: A Boy Given a Second Chance."

Each year, (TBI) contribute to a substantial number of deaths and cases of permanent disability.  The severity of a TBI may range from “mild” to “severe”. 

Ryan not only is a champion on the trike, he is a champion to those living with this disability.
