Jessica Taylor learned about brain injury the hard way when she fell down a flight of concrete stairs. That event changed her life forever. Jessica had to pick up the pieces and glue them back together. She details her life with brain injury in her book, "From Tragedy to Triumph: Journey Back from the Edge." She will share her story and tell of how she advocates for brain injury survivors now.

 

Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!
