Annie Domville, our #TBITuesday feature, has been recovering from her brain injury from a boating accident for 12 years now. She lost so much of her blood and suffered several strokes, resulting in losing most of her vision and paralysis throughout much of her body. But through music therapy with Stephen and Christopher Yang, she has regained motor capability in her right wrist and fingers, can move both of her arms, and can play melodies on the piano. She continues her improvement every day. We all cheer your progress and celebrate your accomplishments Annie!

She has more than 28 years of experience as a strategist, business development executive and organizational behaviorist. In 2004 she had a brain injury that changed her life. Since then, she has been studying, writing and developing methods to improve the brain. Thank you Ruth for being such a big part of SDBIF and for being an #inspirationtousall

Our featured #TBITuesday survivor is one that everyone at SDBIF knows well and loves to be around: Kyle Cooprider, or as he likes to be known, "Van Kyle with a Smile". Since he suffered a brain injury following an automobile accident in Germany in 1989, Kyle has discovered his gifts as an artist. He is one of our Honorary Committee members for our Friendraiser in September and we are always thrilled to have him around!

San Diego Brain Injury Foundation feeling inspired.

Our featured survivor for this week's #TBITuesday is none other than San Diego's, Jacalyn! After a serious car accident she had to relearn how to walk, talk and even feed herself...but that didn't slow her down. She is now a graduate of the occupational therapy assistant program at Grossmont College and is looking to help others recovering from brain injury. She is also holding her 2nd annual garage sale on July 29 from 6am-2pm to raise awareness and funds for brain injury. See the attached flyer for more information!

This is the story of his journey to recovery and the importance of always wearing a helmet. Alex's video is being shown in schools and has affected thousands of children by convincing them to always wear their helmet.
