Free At Last
July 10, 2008 ·
It is my sad duty to report that Danny Vacin passed away. Danny was born February 3, 1986 and is the son of Bob and Candy Vacin. Danny has two brothers Noel and Mike and one sister Sara. Danny sustained a traumatic brain injury on November 15, 2003 in a car crash in Port Tobacco, Maryland. He was airlifted to Prince George’s County Trauma Center. After a month, he was admitted to Kerman Hospital in Baltimore for rehabilitation. After over a year on December 27, 2004, Danny was admitted to the Charles County Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for long term care. Danny had multiple surgeries including removing a third of his scull. There were many trips to the University of Maryland Hospital in Baltimore. Recently, Danny was transported to the University of Maryland Center after a a CT scan of Dan’s brain showed a problem with his CSF shunt. After replacing the shunt and tubing he was taken back to the nursing home. Danny and his family has been living with a coma and the impact of a traumatic brain injury since the accident in November of 2003. Bob, Candy and the family stood by him every day since. Our hearts go out to the Vacin family. Danny is a member of Southern Maryland Brain Injury Group and Bob is the President. We are sad but realize that it is best that Danny is free at last. May God receive a courageous young man who fought a good fight as long as he could.
