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. 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 that is big business over 75 billion a year, where the rich control the destiny of the lost for a buck. Let us make a world where we are accepted not jailed or isolated, empowered not controlled. One where we embrace this new person to be a better, braver, strong more creative and productive part of society.

Many of you remember former BIRN Host, Fantastic Frank Johnson. He was trapped in a fire, carried out in a body bag, and suffered a substantial anoxic brain injury. Motivated to Inspire millions, Frank has been a platform speaker, had his story printed in multiple publications, and was of course, a radio host! He has been involved in many enterprises, and one is free to you - Get his Free Guide "7 Motivational Secrets to Excel Every Day" at FFHero.com. Also check out his story in the Chicken Soup for the soul TBISOUP edition. Dave Pronko once served as a paid caregiver for Frank. Most times when we discuss caregivers, it is in terms of a spouse, or an institutional setting. A private caregiver iis another option we don't often discuss. Tonight we will hear from the pros and cons from both sides of that coin. Unfortunately, Dave went on to suffer a couple of horrible accidents, and became a survivor himself. In this case we hear the unique perspective of when the caregiver becomes the survivor. This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery. More will be revealed! 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, which takes a good bit of Warrior! Hosted by Kim Justus, author of In a Flash: Miracles Here and Beyond and Hootie's Hollow and the Magic Tree found at inaflash.org and "Like" me at facebook.com/inaflash.org too!
