Virginia Brain Injury Advocate Dies after Decades of Service

The founder of the Brain Injury Association of Virginia and the mother of a man who suffered a serious brain injury during died at the age of 79.

According to the Times-Dispatch, Evelyn Esposito has passed away, leaving behind her husband of 60 years, five children, and twelve grandchildren.

In 1977, Esposito’s son, Bill, suffered a concussion while playing high school football. Two weeks later, while practicing for the contact sport, he collapsed from a blood clot caused by the earlier head injury and spent two weeks in a coma. Over the next several decades, Evelyn and her husband Frederick helped their son recover from the accident. He now has a family, a career, and a full life.

Esposito founded the Brain Injury Association of Virginia in 1983. It remains the only non-profit organization in the state that solely helps the victims of head injuries and their families – and it helps an estimated 10,000 people every year. In addition, she started Camp McCoy, a camp for children with brain injuries.
