It was New Year's Eve in 2009 when my helmet saved my life.
Training for the Winter Olympics in Utah, I was at the top of competitive snowboarding when I suffered a life-threatening traumatic brain injury that I'm still recovering from to this day. And while I can never snowboard competitively again, I hope to be a voice for the millions of Americans who grapple with diseases of the brain.
Until my injury, I didn't spend too much time thinking about my brain, but in the last few years, I've learned a lot about the engine that drives our thoughts, emotions, and actions.
I've learned that in my battle to recover from this devastating injury, I am not alone. Researchers estimate that around 100 million Americans suffer from brain disorders at some point in their lives. From Alzheimer's to autism and ALS all the way to traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, and chronic depression, diseases of the brain are not only catastrophic, they are common.
That's why the President's BRAIN Initiative -- an all-hands-on-deck effort to understand the human brain and enable the tools, techniques, and technologies that can improve scientists' ability to diagnose, treat, and prevent neurological diseases -- is personal for me.
Since my injury, I've learned that the human brain remains one of the greatest mysteries in science. Decades of neuroscience have revealed much about how the brain works, but the great majority of the brain's activity, involving about 100 trillion neural connections, remains uncharted.
That's changing quickly. Since the President announced the BRAIN Initiative last year, the research community, federal agencies, foundations, patient advocacy groups, private research institutes, companies, scientific societies, and individual scientists have committed more than $300 million to this bold effort to capture a dynamic image of the human brain, similar to the one that mapped the human genome.
The goals of the BRAIN Initiative are ambitious, but they're achievable.
Imagine if no family had to grapple with the helplessness and heartache of a loved one with Parkinson's, or TBI, or PTSD. Imagine if Alzheimer's, or ALS, or chronic depression were eradicated in our lifetime. Imagine if we played a role in those breakthroughs.
That's why I've worked so hard on connecting, educating, and empowering around brain health, and to tell the story about how much the brain can improve, adapt, heal, and grow. And that's why I'm so excited to lend my voice to these efforts to help catalyze the next generation of treatments for brain diseases. Though my voice may be more public than most, I know that so many Americans have loved ones that have battled brain disorders just as I have.
I may never get to stand on the Olympic podium, but I'm thrilled to stand with the scientists and students, researchers and citizens on the edge of the next great frontier -- unlocking and understanding the three pounds of matter that sit between our ears.

President Obama speaks on airstrikes against ISIL in Syria
Watch: President Obama delivers a statement on airstrikes on ISIL
Last night, President Obama ordered American armed forces to begin targeted airstrikes against ISIL targets in Syria. Speaking from the White House South Lawn today before heading to the United Nations General Assembly, the President made it clear that these strikes are part of the U.S. campaign to deliver one message on ISIL: They will find no safe haven.
The U.S. military actions also included strikes to disrupt plotting against the U.S. and our allies by the Khorasan Group -- a cell of seasoned al Qaeda operatives in Syria.
In his statement, the President made clear that the fight against these terrorists "is not America's fight alone":
"The people and governments of the Middle East are rejecting ISIL, and standing up for the peace and security that the people of the world deserve. Not since the Gulf War has the United States been joined in direct military action by such a broad coalition of Arab partners. Meanwhile, we will move forward with our plan -- supported by bipartisan majorities in Congress -- to ramp up our effort to train and equip the Syrian opposition, who are the best counter-weight to ISIL and the Assad regime."
President Obama also previewed his trip to the U.N. General Assembly, where he'll continue building support for the effort against ISIL:
"Over the next several days, I will be meeting Prime Minister Abadi of Iraq and with friends and allies at the United Nations to continue building support for the coalition that is confronting this profound threat to peace security. This overall effort will take time. There are challenges ahead. But we’re going to do what is necessary to take the fight to this terrorist group -- for the security of our country, the region, and the entire world."
