Doctors Say Teen Recovering From Traumatic Brain Injury is a Walking Miracle

(12 News Now) — Doctors doubted him but four months after Noah Jackson suffered a traumatic brain injury, health professionals are calling him a walking miracle.

The 16-year-old Port Neches-Groves sophomore spent 40 days in the hospital after getting seriously injured during a JV football game. At first, doctors were not sure Jackson would survive. The teen is undergoing physical therapy at South County Physical Therapy in Port Arthur.

“You just can’t sit around and be sorry for yourself,” Jackson said “You got to get up and do something about it, be better than you were the day before.” Jackson had to undergo emergency brain surgery after the October of 2021 injury. He was fighting for his life while in a medically induced coma. CONTINUE
