Pronger Struggling With Recovery

from Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly,

Every day at home in South Jersey, it’s a constant struggle for Lauren Pronger and her husband Chris, and their family.

“We have a lot of help,” she said. “And we need it.”

Lauren Pronger, who is co-chairman of the Flyers Wives Fight for Lives Carnival, said Sunday that there has not been any substantial change, either positive or negative, to Chris’ post-concussion syndrome since she last spoke in January.

She also admitted that, for the first time, her family is considering reaching out to Keith Primeau who has been suffering from post-concussion syndrome for six years, because her and Chris want to know what life may be like if he never gets better.

“That has been brought up a lot lately,” she said. “There are a lot of parallels between the two [men]. I think Chris is starting to realize now that he should be in communication with him.

Here is someone Pronger should reach out to,  Dean MacAmmond. See what affect his shot to the head had on him as well. Or how about Tomas Holstrom?
