People have heard about brain injury but they really don't think about until it happens to them, which at that point it is all they or anyone they know can talk about.

Lost alone and frightened learn about it before it’s too late, before it can take you or a loved one’s life away forever, the more you know the better you will be.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Courtney Clark joins me again. this time to discuss her book, "The Giving Prescription: A Personal Plan for Healing Through Helping." Since Courtney's life was derailed with her brain injury, she has focused on how to not only heal herself, but also to lend her learning through her speaking engagements and her books. Courtney Clark was fighting a diagnosis of cancer when her doctor found an arteriovenous malformation in her brain. An AVM, a tangled mass of blood vessels is congenital, meaning that it is present at birth. It is likened to a time bomb and can rupture at any time. Courtney immediately found the best surgeon in the US and set off for New York City. In tonight's show, Courtney will talk about her experience and how she became a motivational speaker to help other folks. 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!
