Editor's note: This is part two of a two-part series on how concussions suffered in hockey altered the life of Jefferson high School junior Kalley Kragenbring. Part one was published in the April 3 edition of the Echo Press.


Kalley Kragenbring never imagined the game against Detroit Lakes where she suffered her second concussion in a span of 31 days would be her last, but as the months passed, the symptoms never diminished.
