Juliet Madsen has served in the US Army since she was 17-years old. She was involved in Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield. While serving her country, Juliet suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury and at least one stroke, which changed her life forever.
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!

Cheryl has been back at her ACAC administrative position for three weeks, and today joins John to talk about her experience in Gabon, her role on the Divine Design Team and also her thoughts on the upcoming holiday season.

Tune in and support Ms.Jenny Williams. Jennie will share her story with us in hopes of, helping other women to get OUT of their situation. I read an interesting article from the Huffington written by- Alanna Vagianos. This is ALARMING
The number of American troops killed in Afghanistan and Iraq between 2001 and 2012 was 6,488. The number of American women who were murdered by current or ex male partners during that time was 11,766. That's nearly double the amount of casualties lost during war.
Women are much more likely to be victims of intimate partner violence with 85 percent of domestic abuse victims being women and 15 percent men. Too many women have been held captive by domestic violence -- whether through physical abuse, financial abuse, emotional abuse or a combination of all three.
I will continue to use my platform to give anyone a voice to speak out and to help others.

Radiant Survivor is a book on healing that will give hope and encouragement to anyone facing trauma in their life, be it big or small. As they make their way down their path of rehabilitation, this book will help lead them to an awakening to a new life. It’s a compilation of stories, mine as well as others who have faced their own tragedies and have survived and thrived, in spite of the odds.

Since then, her focus has been to help provide inspiration and encouragement to others who face their own life-challenging experiences. She also continues to do the work she was doing before her stroke, helping women find their "yin radiance" through their authentic voice and their own healing. She has been interviewed numerous times on international radio shows and blogs, and her book Radiant Survivor: How to Shine and Thrive through Recovery from Stroke, Cancer, Abuse, Addiction and Other Life-Altering Experiences has been endorsed by renowned figures.

Ray is a young stroke survivor. It has been found that he was suffering from a rare condition called thoracic outlet syndrome or TOS for short. This caused an aneurysm to form in his subclavian artery. TOS sent him through a round of surgeries and stays in the hospital. Doctors started going over all his brain scans and investigating and found by comparing brain scans done before that he had suffered a stroke sometime around August of 2011. He recovered. then one morning with a horrible headache that would not go away, it was also accompanied by nausea and uncontrollable vomiting. He stayed home but on the 2nd day the pain was so unbearable and that he decided to call the doctor and was told to get to the ER. He went and the last thing he remembered was a voice saying, “you have significant bleeding in your brain and we are not equipped to handle this.” He was having a hemorrhagic stroke. They had to do an emergency craniotomy to drain the blood from his brain.
This show is about stroke and brain injury and is for anyone interested in stroke with bits and pieces thrown in for inspiration, ways to be healthy, less stressed and more. I want to be here to share and to lift up other stroke survivors or warriors. I want to help you find out there are others going through what you have gone though. Maybe not the same journey but a survivor none the less. To give positive information, inspire and embrace what you have and continue moving forward.

Please join Health Educator & Life Coach, Erica Haray-Butcher, as she chats with Author, Breast Cancer Survivor, fellow Life Coach, and former attorney, Jenn McRobbie.
Jenn and Erica will be talking about Jenn's journey through breast cancer, as well as her brand new book- Why is She Acting So Weird? A Guide to Cultivating Closeness When a Friend is in Crisis.
Jenn was a very happily married mother of two beautiful young girls when she was diagnosed with stage 3A breast cancer that had already spread to her lymph nodes. There was no history of breast cancer in her family, making this even more suprising. She underwent multiple surgeries, chemo, and radiation, and through her health jouirney, she decided it was finally time to live, love, and be free.
In her book, Jenn shares her experience of how friendships change when a friend goes through a crisis, and offers tips to people who want to be supportive of a loved one, but aren't sure what to do or what to say.

Alisa Kaplan is not a name one might recognize initially, but she is the survivor involved in one of the most infamous sexual assault trials in SouthernCalifornia history. Having remained relatively silent over the last 13 years, she is now telling her story in her first book Still Room For Hope: A Survivor's Story of Sexual Assault, Forgiveness, and Freedom
In Still Room For Hope,Kaplan shares the dramatic account of what happened to her, the shame and humility that nearly destroyed her, and her journey on the road to becoming more than just a victim.
In 2002, three men forever changed 16-year-old Kaplan's life when she became an innocent victim to a brutal gang rape that was captured on tape. As if the grotesque actions against Kaplan were not horrific enough, this vibrant, young teenager lost all sense of self-worth, became crippled by drug abuse, depression and homelessness, and soon found her entire world falling apart. Come join me as we journey along of Alisa I know you will be moved by her story.
Dr. Mike Robinson, host of Parent Talk Live talks with Tamara Wallace Norman, a cancer survivor about how her faith and resiliency supported her desire to be involved in the academic life of her son.
Tamara Wallace Norman, native of Dayton, Ohio, is a wife, mother, and avid roller skater. Tamara is also a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed in December 2011. At that time her son, Zion, was 6 years old and in first grade. He was also in his 2nd year of attending an immersion language academy where we was studying Mandarin. During Tamara’s cancer journey, she took a break from her 20-year career as a flight attendant in order to focus on treatment and supporting her son’s education. Her approach to dealing with life has always been to incorporate with her faith two attributes: resiliency and steadfastness. She has seen the effects of this positive approach to life play out in her ability to remain cancer-free for three years and in her role as a mother, helping her son to excel in his studies. Whether flying, gliding across the hardwood or writing about her passion for roller skating (you can find her at www.lacesandwheels.com), Tamara’s zest for life is most apparent. She currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her husband, Jaron, and her son, Zion.
