Letter from Lash & Associates

by Marilyn Lash

We are so proud to introduce the first issue of Brain Injury Journey – Hope, Help, Healing. We spent a lot of time choosing our magazine’s title because we wanted it to reflect our philosophy as well as the needs, issues, and concerns we hear every day. Words matter, so we have chosen them carefully.

Brain Injury - We address all types of acquired brain injuries with those due to internal causes such as brain tumors, infections, or stroke as well as traumatic injuries due to external forces of collisions, explosions, assaults, falls, or gunshots.

Journey - Living with a brain injury is an ongoing process or journey that is constantly changing, challenging, and rewarding for everyone involved. There is no finish line with a tape to cross, cheering crowds, and a celebratory party. Rather it is getting up and facing each day with the conviction and purpose of rebuilding one’s life.

Hope - This   is what survivors, families, and caregivers tell us is so important. Hope is what sustains them in their darkest periods. Hope is the vision that lights the darkness and creates new possibilities for a better future.

Help - As the African proverb says, “It takes a village to raise a child.” The same is true for brain injury. Help comes from many people and in many ways. The individual who survives a brain injury enters a community that is much larger than friends and family. It includes clinicians, therapists, educators, advocates, providers, insurers, and many, many more. They share the goal of ensuring that treatment for brain injury is more than just survival.

Healing - There is no fixed timetable for recovery. The healing process after brain injury is much more than a neurological recovery. Healing is multidimensional. Yes, it is physical, but it is also emotional, social, familial, and spiritual.

That is our philosophy, and that is the foundation for this magazine. We hope you find the articles, information, and insight valuable and helpful in your journeys, whether they be personal or professional. You are all valuable members of this very special community.
