SUSTAINING POWERS: Rising Above Grief & Loss-ebook

This book is for anyone that has ever lost a loved one through traumatic brain injury. It is for any parent who has ever sat up at night worrying about a child serving in the military overseas. It is for those with a parent or grandparent suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, unable to fix or heal them. It is for those who can only watch and wait as their loved one slowly deteriorates and fades away. Cathy Powers writes to reveal her crisis of faith as her son’s survival was in question.

During her journey, Cathy documented her daily life and her son’s progress through a social media platform. While her story and continued faith in God, throughout even the hardest of times, was an inspiration to many, Cathy kept her true fears and struggles hidden. In this book, she opens up to what life was really like for a mother who is forced to live through her worst nightmare: the loss of her son.

MY BRAIN AND I eBook

Jennifer Callaghan writes from personal experience on sustaining severe traumatic brain injury and its aftermath. She describes in poignant detail her struggles, obstacles, and frustrations, as well as the triumphs and gains over a 16-year period.

Her story begins with a traumatic experience of being the victim of another person’s recklessness in traffic (speeding). She recounts vividly her immediate family’s capacity to cope with her trauma and debilitation, her own anger and irritability because of lost skills and abilities, and the loss of inhibitions developed from former lifestyle.

As her journey continued, Jennifer reveals her thinking, feelings, and perceptions of the world around her. Her recall of these processes is attributable to a thoughtful doctor suggesting she journal what she was happening in her life, which seemed an insurmountable task. The journaling proved to be instructional and rewarding.

Concussion and Mild Brain Injury: Not Just Another Headline eBook

Bonnie Nish has compiled a collection of personal experiences of recovery by survivors of mild traumatic brain injury. Imagine being a single mom about to take your children on a family vacation. Suddenly, the van door swings shut and hits you in the head. You think, "Wow!! That hurt, but it's nothing an ice pack can’t solve." A few months after this happened to Meg Stainsby, she was sitting at her family’s Thanksgiving dinner table when she suddenly recalled signing papers to sell the home she shared with her two daughters and dog in order to move into a small two-bedroom condominium.

Concussion and Mild Brain Injury: Not Just Another Headline gives clear insight into how the lives of those suffering from concussion and mild brain injury (MBI) are impacted. The individual stories of injury, recovery and discovery document the effect of the survivor's MBI on immediate and extended family members, and social and work communities.

These first-hand accounts of survivors of MBI in many facets of the community will bring tears, laughter and increased understanding, restoring hope that the ongoing challenges faced by the survivors in all walks of life can and will improve. Each story shows that MBI touches the lives of individuals from all strata of society, from the media famous to the relatively unknown.

The Macro Change Handbook: Organizing For Advocacy - Formal Steps to Macro Change eBook

This pragmatic approach to advocacy and community change is a practical handbook that will guide any advocate – family member, individual, provider or policy analyst through the "nitty-gritty" of promoting and achieving real change for persons with disabilities and the community.
