Welcome to Joseph Battistoni's Page

I, Joseph Battistoni was an ambitious 21-year-old attending Dutchess Community College and pursuing a business degree in 2015. On March 30, 2015, my life changed forever after suffering a massive hemorrhagic stroke. I was air-lifted to Westchester Medical Center where I spent twenty-eight days in the Neuro ICU and underwent multiple surgeries.
I spent five months at Helen Hayes Hospital in West Haverstraw, NY following my stay at Westchester Medical Center where I regained a significant amount of function. Initially, I was unable to walk, speak, or comprehend; however, I gradually re-acquired these abilities. After being discharged from Helen Hayes, I continued intensive physical, speech, and occupational therapies as an outpatient, which allowed me to continue on my path of regaining strength and independence. I am continuing to work hard every day and strive to become as independent as possible. Thanks to the support of the New York State Brain Injury Association, I have been able to navigate the complex rules, regulations, and laws associated with services for traumatic brain injury patients in the state, which has allowed me to re-establish my independence.
Thank you for visiting, I am grateful for all of the support towards this cause that is so dear and close to my heart. Together we can make a difference!
- Joseph Battistoni
