Karen Leavitt, author of The Resilient Soul will talk about how she survived a motor vehicle accident on I-95 - one of our country's busiest highways in the New England area. As a survivor with no viible effects of brain injury, Karen faces the difficult challenges of invisible brain injury. But, Karen avows, "Don’t let them define you through a diagnosis code." Brain injury  doesn’t define who Karen is ... AND it should NOT define you either.

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!
