Imagine Western Kentucky University's Diddle Arena at its full capacity. That's roughly 7,000. Multiply Diddle at full capacity by 700 and you get roughly how many Americans are suffering from a brain injury, which is roughly 5 million.

You or someone you know may have a brain injury from an accident, tumor, stroke or a number of other causes.

The Brain Injury Association of Kentucky said a traumatic brain injury happens every 23 seconds. That's why March is dedicated to Brain Injury Awareness Month.

"I don't think people think about brain injury until it affects them, when it does affect them, they want to get involved and do as much as they can to help people," said Jamie Miller with the Brain Injury Association of Kentucky.
