Kerri Brantley is a Captain in the Missouri Army National Guard and native of Boise, Id. She recently moved to Maryland, where she is a writer/editor for Joint Hometown News Service at Fort George G. Meade. Kerri is still active in the Army National Guard. She joined to provide for her family and serve her country. Kerri is a single-mom and combat Vet who is currently working on her masters in Management in Public Relations. Kerri’s mom was diagnosed with a rare type of brain tumor that was never supposed to reoccur. Unfortunately it has, in spite of some of the latest technology and treatments. Kerri’s mom is not in shape for the interview, but I felt this was such an incredible journey, that it needed to be told. Our prayers need to be with them. I had occasion to meet Kerri when I was speaking to her about a common passion of ours. It was then that I heard the story about her mom. Hopefully we can enlighten you on both. 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. We often have music in the second have from some great Indie Musicians! Host is Kim Justus, author of In a Flash: Miracles Here and Beyond found at www.inaflash.org

According to U.S. News and World Report, more than 180,000 brain tumors (malignant and benign) are diagnosed each year. Brain tumors account for 25% of all cancers in children. Our featured guest this week underwent a craniotomy in 2012, at the young age of 17, to remove a grade II astrocytoma. The tumor type grows relatively slowly and usually doesn't have well-defined borders. Due to its infiltrative nature, recurrences are relatively common.
Catherine Blotner is a patient advocate for the young adult cancer community. As a featured guest on the Cure Magazine weekly Twitter chat, she shared the side effects of treatment and the impacts at home and school. In this episode, we'll chat with Catherine about the day-to-day issues young adults with brain tumors face, along with managing worry and fear of recurrence.
Not only has Catherine survived her ordeal, she is thriving. She has created a platform and uses her experience with her brain tumor to provide support, spread information about, and make resources readily accessible for others who have been affected by cancer.

THIS WEEK: Bill of Rights for the Brain Injured
The Bill of Rights are Laws created to protect the PEOPLE, not a specific demographic. For more than twenty years, those serving in CONgress (and Politics) have spent their days creating new legislation to manipulate and distort what America’s Founding Fathers established.
But should people with Brain Injuries be allowed to own firearms?
Politicians are currently under the beLIEf that the "stupidity of the American voter is a requirement for these laws to pass". So, for those of us with Brain Injuries, it is paramount that we immerse ourselves into retaining the RIGHTS the Founding Fathers established, if not, WTF? Join the TBI THRIVER TEAM tonight and share your thoughts on this topic, understanding, Together Everyone Achieves Miracles.

THIS WEEK: BRAIN HEALTHY FOODS
I used to "LOVE" Pringles (along w/a plethora of other food products), but it wasn't until after my TBI that I started noticing... things weren't as they seemed.
Over the last six years, I've discovered over 100 'food products' that I once consumed but now don't (and won't) because of what I've learned about them.
Join us tonight at 7pm PDT on www.BrainInjuryRadio.com or call in LIVE @424.243.9540 as we discuss BRAIN HEALTHY FOOD and items that hinder our overall well Being.
Tune in this week to add another perspective to your daily repertoire. If there is something in particular you would like to hear Kevin discuss, join us on Fridays and share in the chat room with the "Marvelous Maggie" (Kevin's 24/7 Partner and Professional Care Assistant)
How much do you know about brain injury? Many people talk about traumatic brain injury, strokes, cancer, and tumors but there are more!
How many people know details about the others? Toxemia, M.S., M.D., diffuse axonal, anoxic, autism, etc.
There are a number or neurological impairments that are brain injuries which are never discussed enough or brought to the forefront of conversations.
There are a number of things we, in the brain injury community, need to bring forth to the public, to make the public aware off, and to build educational resources available.
WE NEED TO STAND TOGETHER AND HELP EDUCATE PEOPLE, NOT JUST US SURVIVORS BUT FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS, AND LOVED ONES OF THE INJURED.
There are a group of us which are working on making a global resource center online for support, counseling and education but we all must stand together. Please join our show and lets start working together!
