It took two brain tumors to make a love story. It was unlikely that Jaime and Crystal would have met had they not each suffered a brain tumor. But they did have brain tumors and they did meet . . . with a little help from their friends. An email relationship began, which eventually led to their engagement and some years later Jaime and Crystal were married. They now walk the road of brain injury hand-in-hand.
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, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips 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!

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs every 18.5 seconds in the U.S. Concussions are the most common. Chances are you have been touched in some way by this experience. TBIs occur due to accidents and sports, and are also common in returning soldiers.
Dr. Carolyn Roy-Bornstein, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Recovering from Traumatic Brain Injuries, have carefully chosen stories that cover the whole range of injuries and outcomes. She brings her expertise as a medical doctor and as the mother of a TBI survivor to the selection process.
Whether you are recovering from a traumatic brain injury or supporting someone with a TBI, join Dr. Carolyn Roy-Bornstein and me on Tuesday, June 24, 10-11 A.M. CT US, as we discuss inspiring and encouraging stories that will uplift and encourage you on your healing journey.
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.
Listen in tonight with Penny and Kathy as they talk about brain injury and the challenges that it brings along with struggles and pain. They will be talking about ways and strategies to compensate and overcome some of the challenges that is brain injury. In order to live life again after brain injury we need to develop tools that work for us individually. And tonight we shall through some out for you to consider. The more we know and understand the better quality of life we will have. Don’t Miss tonight encore presentation?
Lets make a positive approach to enlighten people to learn about brain injury in a positive fashion! Getting the word out is healthy for people without brain injuries to learn and help those who are survivors. Why wait until you get confronted with brain injury to learn about them?
OPEN MIC NIGHT FOR ANYONE INVOLVED WITH BRAIN INJURY.... CAREGIVERS, FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS....
TELL YOUR STORIES. LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD. HELP THE PUBLIC UNDERSTAND. HELP EACH OTHER!!!
Wonder how many people go through struggles with brain injuries?
Wonder what kind of hardships they have?
Are you curious if anyone sees things the way you do with brain injuries?
How do you see yourself moving forward if your focus is on the past? Who keeps you down? Who picks you up? Who decides what gets to you? YOU DO!
The physical trials after surviving a brain injury we may not be able to always overcome. We may still have a cane, a walker, a wheelchair, some trouble speaking, walking or hearing but one thing we can control is our own happiness. We decide on what aggravates us, what keeps us down, and what bothers us. It's time to take control of our lives in a positive fashion.
Positive reinforcement and outlook is the only way to move ahead in life. We, as survivors, have had our bouts since our brain injuries but no one is to say life is over now. This is a subject that hits us at home but s a struggle all people go through in life. We decide on how things affect us. We can let things overcome our focus and willpower.
Why let the things we can't control overwhelm us instead of just controling the things we can- happiness.
Small rewards in brain injury rehabilitation lead to larger goals of accomplishment, self esteem, empowerment, and confidence. This affects our outlook, the way we portray ourselves to others, and helps our own bodies grow healthy to remain there. If anything to be happy about, we are alive!!!

Also joining us is Tai Campbell, my invaluable contributor tireless community activist, and founder of Taken Back Our Community (TBOC) http://www.tbocnow.org.

Our guest tonight is Martha's daughter, Mia Dalene Marcum-McCoy, Her book Phenomenal Brain Power: from brain injury to brain awakening is an inspirational account of her journey to reclaim her life after a 2001 brain injury in a car vs bicycle collision. She recalls awakening to an altered sense of self and a need to fine meaning in the chaos that her orderly, purpose-driven life had become. Her dream-life took a bad turn on that fateful day in 2001. She was the epitome of the millennial woman; newly divorced, mother of two, bright well educated and well positioned to succeed in her career. An undiagnosed concussion turned her life upside down and turned it into a cruel caricature. Slowly and painfully she came to terms with the need to create a new dream, a new life and a new self. Phenomenal Brain Power is both a roadmap and journal of the trip of a lifetime.

Have you ever sustained a brain injury have you ever known anyone who had a concussion? These days there is a lot of talk in the media about domestic violence, football players and Post Concussion Syndrome, PCS. However, the general public doesn’t really understand how serious a seemingly minor concussion can be. One of the main reasons we’re tackling this topic this evening is that even a seemingly minor concussion can have life-long, life altering consequences. And that is the topic of tonight's discussion. The plan is to learn from one another and to educate one another about TBI and its aftermath. We know personally just how a traumatic even a concussion can be. Please call in (424) 243-9540 and tell us a little about yourself, your TBI; how it happen and how things are going at this time and we'll put our heads together and offer the benefit of our experiences and hopefully in all of that we'll find solutions that work for you. Tonight's format is "Brainstorm."
