Children are at high risk for brain injuries. The fall off changing tables, they are dropped by parents and other loved ones they are unsteady on their feet and therefore tend to fall down and hurt their fragile developing brains. Because children are growing rapidly they make what is thought to be a fast recovery. However, while tissue and bones might heal quickly the altered brain may take a different track. The greatest difficulties become apparent when they reach adolescence and their hormones kick in and the worse, out of control behaviors begins. Our guest tonight suffered such an injury when he was 11 years old. Back then brain injury was very poorly understood and he and his family were cut adrift to learn as you go the mysteries of brain injury. Well, this kid and his family were put through the mill and he has just recently learned what went wrong and why. Join us tonight for a discussion of their experiences of brain injury and what the family and what the future has in store.

September 11, 2001 signaled a day of everlasting change for most of America. When we had our brain injuries, that process of ongoing grief and change, happened for us too. In both cases, many suffer not only from their injuries, but PTSD as well. Please call in tonight on this Eve of 9-11, when many of us revisit our grief from the country's tragedy, to those of our own. Collective mourning lends itself to support, and frees us from the isolation, we so often seek. It was 14 years ago that 9-11 happened. For me, 19 years since my brain injury. Too often we are told by others, or believe ourselves, that we should be done feeling the sting of our mourning this far down the road. Reality shows us, that recovery is process, with many triggers on the road, reminding us of the day(s) that changed us forever.
This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.
More will be revealed! Tune in, stop in and call in. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."
We focus on the four A's of Recovery: Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers.
Some nights we will have a featured guest, others we will introduce a topic of recovery, encouraging callers to join us in the discussion. The second part of the show is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire!

Let's talk about art!
Whether you're an artist or not, life with a brain injury takes a ton of creativity. I left my career as a rehabilitation clinician and became an artist after a TBI in 2010. The arts saved me by giving me a community and a way to explain my situation in a way other people could get it.
Making art can be adapted to any and all disabilities, and there are as many types of art or ways of expression as there are people. How do you use art? Personal expression, therapy, rehabilitation, political statement, or community building?
Whether you do drawing, photography, music, decorating, writing, sculpting, painting, sewing, movies, graffiti or any type of art, let's chat! You can introduce listeners to your art form and share with us the ways you adapt your art to work for a person living with a brain injury.
Are you a high level brain injury survivor and no one can see your disability or impairments? No one understands the effects of cognitive impairments like impulse control, frustration, PTSD, overstimulation of the senses, or what it is like taking time to think things out and process? Do you wonder if you are able to go out back into the work force? We have a number of people who are in these positions. Where do we go? Who do we talk to?
Join in on this radio show so we can discuss how to approach this problem. Educate yourselves, educate others, help people become aware.

This show is dedicated to KASANDRA PERKINS & now 12 year old CHANCELLOR LEE ADAMS son of Cherica Adams & ex- football player Rae Carruth. Chancellor like his mother was an innocent victim. He survived the shooting but suffers from cerebral palsy because of the senseless act. Kansas City Chiefs linebacker, Jovan Belcher shot and killed Kasandra Perkins, 22, his girlfriend and the mother of his baby. He then drove to the team's practice facility, where he killed himself. Have the athletes gone wild? We remember the tragedy on November 15, 1999 when a pregnant Cherica Adams was murdered by Carolina Panther first round draft pick Rae Carruth in order to eliminate his burdens. Today their son Chancellor is alive and being cared for by his grandmother. Let's not forget the others that have suffered at the hands of an inflated ego. Do you feel because they are pro athletes they demand everything and think that they can get away with just about anything? Do the coaches, fans, media and even police officials play a part in this favoritism? Well, can they?
