Near-fatal injuries inspire Bob Woodruff to help veterans coming home

October 24, 2014

CHICAGO — Vision impairment is only one of Bob Woodruff’s lasting sequelae after living through near-fatal injuries from a roadside bomb explosion in Iraq almost 9 years ago.

The effects of traumatic brain injury have been long-lasting since the ABC News journalist was injured, but he has been recovering steadily. He continues to regain language skills lost to aphasia and manage limited field of vision in both eyes.

“It’s been a long, long road,” Woodruff said at the American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting in a special presentation intended to highlight the needs of persons living in the aftermath of traumatic brain injury.
