If you were to lose a hand, you would no doubt feel a tremendous sense of grief, pain, and loss. However, over time, with the help of prosthetics, you would learn to adapt to your condition. Same goes for losing a leg.

There is no prosthetic for the brain. There is no more delicate organ in the body than the brain. Concussions aren't just about headaches and dizziness. In my case, my short-term memory is shot, I can't concentrate enough to read a book, and I can't do my job as a CPA. That's life-altering stuff, and you never think it's going to happen to you until it does.

Your brain is worth the $75 for a new Cascade.
