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.

Greg Fraser, the creator of Jing Shen Kuoshu will also be taking "request scenarios" from people wanting to learn specific techniques or ways to combat or defend against certain attack situations that they may be concerned with.

It will be an amazing and informative seminar that I encourage all of you, whether you yourself are living with disabilities or you have friends that are, come to the Challenged Athletes Center tomorrow and see what this program is about. At the very least, it will be a fun, informative and productive way to spend an hour with some amazing and friendly people.

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.
