(CNN) – What if you lost the ability to create new memories? It happened to John Kirkwood.
The 42 year old environmental engineer from New York miraculously survived a catastrophic brain injury, an aneurism, and blood clot in his head.

He spent years creating work-arounds and teaching his brain to remember things in a new way.
