Join Dave, The Caregiver's Caregiver, as he interviews Tereza Harper & Hana Eicher, the two sisters of Karla Jepson, caregiver to her mom for over a year, that is, until she had a massive aneurysm that left her with severe short-term memory loss and paralysis on her left side. Now her sisters have become not only their mom's caregiver, but Karla’s as well. They will talk about their ordeal, and how they learned how burnout and stress can be disabling, as it was for Karla.
Back in 1979, their family all escaped from Communist Czechoslovakia. Karla's family stayed in a refugee camp in Austria for 5 months and came to California where they settled with the help of the parents' friends. None of them spoke any English when they first came.
Tereza & Hana are both in the health care industry; Karla was a purchasing director at a private school in Calabasas. They each have wonderful children. Hana has a 16 year daughter, Sarah, Karla has a 17 year old son Jake, and Tereza has two daughters, 6 year old Stana, and 4 year old Lenka.
Their dad passed away four years ago, and their mom hurt her lower spine taking care of him in his last two years of life.
They believe the reason they are able to get through all of this hardship is that they were always a very close knit family. It is very difficult for them now to watch their Mom and sister become just a shell of their former selves. They grieve for them, and yet they are still with them.

The loss of independence is what Sandra Williams misses most since her brain injury. She misses running and having energy to do all the things she wants to do. The biggest tip Sandra can offer other survivors is "Don't listen to negative comments or even employers that tell you you can't do the job. Listen to your heart, your soul and fight for yourself and others. It will keep you going." Sandra will talk about what keeps her going on "Another Fork in the Road." Please Tune In!
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!

Join Dave Nassaney, The Caregiver's Caregiver, and his lovely wife, Charlene Nassaney's Amazing story of survival, but not just survival, living abundantly with peace, joy and contentment in the midst of a debilitating stroke and a cafregiver spouse.
Original broadcast airs this Wednesday, 8/12/15, and anytime afterwards on recorded podcast at the same link.
Charlene’s story is truly amazing, and very encouraging to everyone. All who meet her instantly fall in love with her. She has been described as a cross between Martha Stewart and Wonder Woman before her stroke, and it is not uncommon for some who meet her to cry — not tears of pity — but tears of joy and amazement for her attitude and ability despite her disability. Her way of communicating without words is very interesting and very entertaining to experience.
She is also a woman of great faith. At times, we all wonder how we would respond, if a similar circumstance were to happen to us, or to one of our family. She has been non-verbal and paralyzed on one side since September, 1996 as a result of an unexpected, and unexplained stroke.
You truly will be amazed at Charlene’s great positive attitude, which tends to keep our own problems in their proper perspective. Charlene’s story is now an encouraging testimony that inspires anyone who hears it.
Join us tonight as BOTH Kevin and the Marvleous Maggie talk about Care Giver Appreciation Month. Call in LIVE @ 424.243.9540 or joint the chat!

Dr. Todd learned at the age of 28 that he had most of the traits of attention deficit disorder (ADD) and then later a type of dyslexia. Finally, he thought, there was a reason for his thoughts and actions over the years! Since then, he discovered what works for him, and so he helped many others to harness their own gifts. He found what worked to increase brain performance and how to increase productivity. He practiced as a psychotherapist and consultant for over 10 years and today he is committed to practicing as a consultant and executive coach assisting entrepreneurs, leaders, and companies to increase performance and happiness. This formula also works very well with caregivers to increase their happiness. Contact him at www.DrToddFisher.com

Console Wars author Blake J Harris Live with Scott Cluthe
NPR: Best book of the Year !
Seth Rogen from the forward: "The "Console Wars" between Nintendo and Sega is what began a series of events that will lead to the end of humanity as we know it." (well of course!)
Console Wars—a mesmerizing, behind-the-scenes business thriller that chronicles how Sega, a small, scrappy gaming company led by an unlikely visionary and a team of rebels, took on the juggernaut Nintendo and revolutionized the video game industry.
In 1990, Nintendo had a virtual monopoly on the video game industry. Sega, on the other hand, was just a faltering arcade company with big aspirations and even bigger personalities. But that would all change with the arrival of Tom Kalinske, a man who knew nothing about videogames and everything about fighting uphill battles. His unconventional tactics, combined with the blood, sweat and bold ideas of his renegade employees, transformed Sega and eventually led to a ruthless David-and-Goliath showdown with rival Nintendo.
The battle was vicious, relentless, and highly profitable, eventually sparking a global corporate war that would be fought on several fronts: from living rooms and schoolyards to boardrooms and Congress.
Based on over two hundred interviews with former Sega and Nintendo employees, Console Wars is the underdog tale of how Kalinske miraculously turned an industry punchline into a market leader.
Blake J. Harris is a writer and filmmaker based out of New York. He is currently codirecting the documentary based on this book, which is being produced by Scott Rudin, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg. He will also serve as an executive producer on Sony's feature-film adaptation of Console Wars.
