Twelve years ago, on December 22, 1996, Mr. Roberto Hung suffered from a Traumatic Brain Injury at home and became a victim of crime as a Lombard resident homeowner at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard in Du Page County, Illinois—Mr. Hung was at home after working part-time at Dominick’s Food Store in Oakbrook Terrace, when he was injured by a severe hit on the head that left him disabled, paralyzed, bedridden and homebound.
That morning, Roberto Hung was assisted and overdosed by the Lombard Fire Department Paramedics who urgently drove him by ambulance to Good Samaritan Hospital. He was in a deep coma for two months and a half. Later on, Mr. Hung was treated by Marianjoy Rehabilitation staff for recovery as a TBI patient. As a result of Traumatic Brain Injury in Lombard, he became permanently disabled, bed-ridden, homebound, and paralyzed in Du Page County, after he purchased a Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow and paid cash retirement funds at the Maple Park State Bank, in Kane County, from his lifetime work at Felt-Products Inc., also known as Federal Mogul, automotive gasket manufacturer in Skokie, Illinois, and Detroit, Michigan, in the U.S.A. and Latin America. Roberto Hung was employed full-time by The Pampered Chef in Addison, Illinois and enrolled in the same company’s employees benefits, including The Principal Life Insurance policy.
Today, on December 22, 2008, we remember Roberto Hung as a TBI patient who survived neurosurgery and severe head injury as a victim of crime and Lombard resident homeowner, taxpayer, and U.S. citizen in DuPage County, Illinois, USA.
