Darcy Keith - The "Queen of Survival"
A truly inspiring story . Until September 12,1991, Darcy Keith's life was pretty normal. A gifted student in actuarial science at Ball State University in Muncie, IN, the attractive, intelligent and popular 22-year-old led an active, normal collegiate life.
Then tragedy struck . She was riding home with four sorority sisters from a function at Morehead State University in Morehead, Ky., when their car was hit broadside by a semi-tractor trailer. The car was crushed completely by an impact so great that the license plate of the semi-tractor was imprinted into its crumpled side panel. Two of Keith's friends in the backseat, where she was also sitting, were killed instantly. Learn how determination and hope kept her alive . Hear about how she became known as the "Miracle Child" .
She has touched many lives through her work with the Indianapolis Neurosurgical Group since 1994. And through the international program, ThinkFirst, she makes many classroom presentations about her recovery process from traumatic brain injury, memory loss, and paralysis. She has touched thousands of students by sharing how her life changed in one instant from an unexpected event.
"It is the obligation of the cured to help others, I believe. We can choose to be the victims of our circumstances,or to decide to accept, grow and learn from our hardships. I chose not to be a victim, and this has made all the difference for me. I hope that it can help others to overcome their challenges in life as well."

Overcoming life's challenges, whatever they may be, is not easy. One never knows when a challenge may arise. For me, I never thought that something I would experience as a result of a car crash would change my world forever. I never thought that a single incident would force a twenty-two year-old college senior to start over as a small child in every aspect imaginable. The mental, physical, and emotional injuries were indescribable. But, when I was down in the quicksand of pain, anguish, and despair, I decided that I was going to climb to solid ground through fortitude, perseverance, and determination.
There are many common challenges which we all face in life at one time or another. Some are expected while others are not. They may include financial concerns, family issues, loss of a loved one, injury, illness, abuse, and the like. Its how we cope with these challenges that helps determine the outcome and our attitude. My five step plan will help you learn how to survive challenges...and come out on top!
My multi-media presentation includes a Power Point presentation, a video, other props, a demonstration and audience participation. The speech can be tailored to the audience to whom it is being presented.
It's the obligation of the cured to help others. My motivation to speak and assist others came from wanting to help other brain injury survivors and their families. I then realized that the message of overcoming life's challenges applies to everyone at some point. This is why I want to share my secrets of success and achieving the unimaginable in life.
