It is a sinister injury that can change everything in a blink of an eye, and as it goes on misunderstood the dark side of a person a new person starts to emerge, spouses suddenly in a relationship with a stranger, even the survivor does not know themselves. 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. You are not along there are millions of us among you. We represent over 70% of those in prison and even more of the homeless. Together we can stop the devastating effects of this sinister injury that can last a life time.

One where we embrace this new person to be a better, braver, strong more creative and productive part of society.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Deb Brandon, professor of mathmatics at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA hurled down a new path in life when doctors discovered cavernous angiomas in her brain. That tanlged mess of malformed blood vessels changed Deb's life forever. Deb writes her story in her book, But My Brain Had Other Ideas - A Memoir of Recovery from Brain Injury." 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! To learn more about me, please visit my blogs and websites.
