When Ray Ciancaglini was sixteen, he took a hard blow to the head in a boxing match. With the misconception that you had to be knocked out to sustain a concussion, he stepped into the ring again the following week and suffered a second concussion while still in the recovery phase of the initial one. The injurious effects to Ray’s brain from this “second impact” altered the course of his existence forever.

Andy Siegel is a New York City personal injury lawyer who has dedicated his legal career to representing survivors of traumatic brain injury (TBI). He is also the author of The Tug Wyler Mystery Series, a collection of emotionally charged and thought provoking medical-legal thrillers. With his highly acclaimed debut novel Suzy’s Case Andy personified the intensity of the experience of TBI survivors and their families.

Ray and Andy have collaborated on a joint mission: to raise awareness about the dangers of concussion and to encourage a safe return to athletic competition after sustaining a head injury.

Second Impact: The Ray Ciancaglini Story chronicles the account of a young boy’s life whose future had been filled with tremendous promise tragically sent off course by his instinctive competitive spirit. Written in the third person, each chapter ends with Ray’s comments on those life events highlighting the mistakes he made. This unique format allows the reader to follow the story in the form of a novel yet benefit from Ray’s insightful reflections in retrospect.
