Meet one of our FriendRaiser featured artists, Christina Hardy:

Christina Hardy sustained a brain injury from an automobile accident in 1998. After emerging from a coma of several weeks and enduring many surgeries, she began the long process of learning to walk and talk again. Christina has been helped in her recovery by meeting and sharing with other survivors and friends through the San Diego Brain Injury Foundation. She has gone back to school, and has developed a love and a great talent for the art of glass-blowing.

Priya Subramanian April, You are an exceptional parent and all that you have done for your children and others is exemplary.... especially the child who is recovering from TBI.... I cannot underscore enough how helpful Homeopathy is in such conditions...

August 20, 2014 at 4:29 AM

April Bowen Joe, you need to get to know Homeopathy. I have numerous patients that have significantly recovered from TBIs using it, and nothing else. My own son who suffered his most severe TBI at age 17 is walking testimony to what homeopathy can do.

This article from Exceptional Parent magazine, though not entirely up to date, still gives a good overall picture of a family's journey with TBI. Bart has made marvelous progress since it was written in 2012.(With a boost from Omega-3 fish oils, neurofeeback, craniosachral therapy, guitar lessons, part-time work and lots more). Hope you find it of interest and use. God bless us all. http://tbibook.com/exceptional-parent-article/

We've always felt that music and laughter are a big part of our lives and of Bart's recovery. This piece partially explains how that works. By the way, Bart took up guitar a year ago and has stayed with it. (12 years post-injury). Hope you find it of interest and use. God bless us all. .http://beyondinjury.com/listening-to-music/

Is it possible that listening to music or playing a musical instrument might improve the recovery process by stimulating the brain?

Had my own personal 9/11 in 2013, suffering a moderate closed traumatic brain injury as one of many injuries following a 30 foot fall through a skylight. One of the fortunate ones - I'm lucky to be alive. It's been a long road back - following 11 weeks of inpatient care, I've gotten to the point where I'm working 32 of 40 hours per week. Still have some lingering symptoms that I'm not certain will ever go away. That said, I can't thank the dedicated professionals at Sharp Memorial Hospital and Learning Services for helping me get back to this point. I pray each day for a full recovery...
