COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- At the age of just 24, Ryan Boyle is an accomplished author and has won a silver medal representing the United States at the Paralympic Games - all this after overcoming a tremendous obstacle when he was young. In October 2003, Boyle suffered a traumatic brain injury when he was hit and dragged by a truck at nine years old. He spent two months in a coma and then only had movement in one finger but his will to recover never faded.
