Join my on Saturday, July 12, 2014 @ 6am. YES! I am an early bird. I can't wait to be back with all of you. I have been gone since January. Let's catch up.
This show is created for brain aneurysm/avm survivors, friends, family, loved ones, people who lost someone to this invisble disease, and for people who just want to get some information. If you have information on Walks, Awareness projects, community events, support groups, or you just want to call in, that's fine too. I hope you are enjoying your summer. I will be back with you all soon.
People usually only reach out only when they need help or there is a crisis but we here Dream Catchers we believe in community support, Peer to peer Support, and Systems change Advocacy and that there are people everywhere with and without disabilities who can learn a lot from survivors!
I met someone who doesn’t have a disability who is down on their luck. I invited them to come to our last Brain Injury Support group meeting and they came. They wound up telling people all over the community about what we are doing and in turn others started helping out and it turned into a beautiful thing!!!! Tonight we will be talking about building up Community services for everyone in need with is a true act of kindness indeed!
We could work together in a food bank or offer support in many ways but one of the harshest realities I have witnessed in the disability community is that disabilities segregate and separate from one another.
We all are fighting for the same pot of money the same rights under the ADA so why not all of us fight together on the same team for all people with disabilities and be 56,000,000 and for an unbeatable power house team of survivors that just simply believes that discrimination of any type is wrong!!!!

Join me and Barry this Saturday, April 12, 2014 for our guest Rosemari Biondo. Rosemari is a brain aneurysm survivor and if you didn't have the opportunity to listen to our show back in February now you do have the chance to follow up with our guest. You don't want to miss this
Here on Dream Catchers we are Advocating for changes in the TBI movement right now!!! It is time to do all we can when ever we canand repeatedly do everying possible using systems change Advocacy to fire up and motivate us all right now to destroy the glass ceiling that is holding a giant survivor Nation of Empowerd survivors back!!!
We as brain Injury survivors can make this happen! We have the power but we have to beleave and know that we do we do!!!!
As brain injury survivors we are the best people to speak about Brain Injury and have a need to know about how to get the World to listen to us.
I have learned that elected officials often will answer a letter or email and even a phone call from their constituents. I have found that they generally like to here from people in my state and our support group members have even received a call from the governor of our State.
We all as individuals and as a team should make a point to make a call or schedule a visit with our State, local or federal elected officials and let them know our concerns on brain injury policy because if we come together as a strong and united group we can change the World for people with TBI and related disabilities everywhere!
So I am hoping that we can come up with a list of things we should do to prepare ourselves for a meeting them in person or over the phone. Let’s get the ball up and running because I see great things are on their way to help empower brain injury survivors for a bold new future!
Brain Injury comes at you at a million miles per hour! It kicks you in the face and slams the door on your hopes, your Dream, your future and destroys you or does it?
I used to think yes to all of the above but I have learned that where there is pain can come prosperity when you finally give up trying to be who you used to be and start fighting to improve the new you!
I do believe when we surrender the old life the one that most survivors want to cling to until the Day we die that’s when we get the chance to see the glass half full not empty with a bold new life if we dare to Dream it!
I choose the bold new life and starting over rather than let my injuries define me because I will not surrender on my Dreams but live them instead!!!
Join me as we strategies together to build a bold new way of thinking for survivors and reinvent the cog in the wheel of social change and inclusion for people with disabilities everywhere!

HOSTED BY MICHELE JONES
This show is inspired for those living with the effects of Brain Aneurysm/AVM we hope to help inform and empower Survivors, their families, caregivers, and for people who just want to know and be part of the change we need to have the most fulfilling life. .
The show's hope is to inspire and encourage others to grow, learn, and be a part of living with a brain injury, and understanding together we can make a difference.
Let's Start a movement, and be: Brain Changers
I will be discussing New Year, New Beginnings. Not big on resolutions...More like letting go of old nonproductive thinking, and embracing a new positive focus for change in 2014. Bite size pieces, obtainable to all in recovery.
Will be introducing a new host beginning Janauary 11th & then the 2nd Saturday of each month, Michele Jones. Her show will be called Brain Changers. Her show is for Brain Aneurysm/AVM Survivors, their families, caregivers, and for people who just want to know. This show is to inspire and encourage others to grow, learn, and be apart of living with a brain injury. Stop by the beginning of the show to meet her!
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, and others we will introduce a topic of recovery, encouraging callers to join us in the discussion.The back half of the show features great Indy Musicians!
Host is Kim Justus, author of In a Flash: Miracles Here and Beyond found at www.inaflash.org

Me a role model, me really? Are you kidding? Well that’s how I felt when I was asked to start a brain injury support group being a survivor.
Much like a Texas cowboys grabs a bull by the horns we as TBI survivors have to take the bull by the horns and the bull’s name Brain Injury and Lasso that bull and conquer it and the bull’s name is stop Dissing My Abilities. Plain and simple with the survivors have sat on the sidelines of life struggling in pain, desperate for solutions and answers for our quest for true independence and recovery!
Join me tonight because we the survivors have got to stop that I can’t do it in brain injury awareness and take a lead role in how our health care is provided in what agencies we choose and select and who has the right to tell us what we can or not do.
Becoming a role model is becoming a leader in brain injury greatly needs survivors to step up to the plate and take a chance and make a difference even if you feel you can’t try anyway!
He leads 2 brain injury support groups, one being the CSRA Dream Catchers which affiliated with the Brain Injury Association of South Carolina in North Augusta and 2nd being the Augusta brain injury support group, which is affiliated with the brain injury Association of Georgia, each group is a dedicated team of survivors who just don’t understand the word no, and can’t!
We are about inclusion for all, Advocacy for everyone, and empowering people with traumatic brain injuries and related disabilities to understand the peer to peer role in a support group, which can be one person meeting with another or in other ways. It can be large groups of people meeting to advocate either way, or support is very powerful!
Looking Back at My Life is hard to imagine all I’ve been through, but from what I’ve learned. I would go through it all again because of all the wonderful and amazing people who have changed my life for the better that I have met along the way!
It’s hard for me to believe sometimes that I have been through so many: Traumatic Brain Injuries, Aneurysms, AVM, a coma, a portion of my Braing being removed, and several rare and unusual medical procedures on my brain. That’s why can shout to the world that I’m thankful for every pain I’ve ever felt every hurt and hardship that I’ve had and many near-death experiences!
When I say the gift of life until all this all happens to me. I must truly admit I was clueless to the meaning of my life because I had no understanding of what life truly was about; it’s the most precious gift in the universe!
With Christmas and New Year’s and holidays coming it is my wish my prayers, My love of fellow man that any of you suffering from traumatic brain injuries or any related disabilities will have the most wonderful, inspiring Christmas season of your entire life because it is the season to be jolly.
Here at Dream Catchers on Brain Injury Radio we also want to thank all of the wonderful hosts and guests who come each and every night to all of our shows, because without you we would be nothing so I wish you all the happiest of Chrismas seasons and a peaceful new year.
Sincerely, Les Paul Morgan
