Brain injury recovery is difficult and anything but certain. When I met Angela Leigh Tucker in late 2008, she was only four months into her battle. A sudden truck-on-car crash had killed her young husband and left her hanging on to life by a thread.
For the next three years I researched the topic of traumatic brain injury or TBI. Angela and I travelled together to meeting of brain injury survivors and conferences on the subject. I interviewed countless doctors, therapists, co-workers, family members, personal friends and total strangers who came to into her life. This incredible team, led by the irrepressible Angela, never gave up. Learn more about what brain injury recovery and about Angela in "Me Now- Who Next" from Amazon.com, Barnes&Noble.com or an e-reader. She changed my view of life and what a real fight to survive and recover means. Her story could do the same for you.
Together, we will present her story on April 26 at 11 AM at the Blue Ridge Bookfest. The sixth annual event , held at Blue Ridge Community College and featuring forty authors, is free and fun.
