Welcome to the BrainSong Community


 

Micah Jones You are not alone, you have come to the right place for support, information and understanding. BrainSong is a brain injury online community for female survivors. If you are new to the site, please join. It's FREE.

Having a brain injury is a club you didn't ask to join. But it happens and, in one incident, the earth beneath your feet shifts.

When you join BrainSong (it's FREE!), you are instantly linked to a network of fellow survivors, family members, caregivers, medical pros and others who, in essence, become your "support" via our website. 24/7, we are here for each other.

Ask questions, share experiences, dig for information, give a resource, help each other through rough spots.

Join me at the BrainSong community, and together we'll build a life with new lyrics.

Featured Survivor 

Grace Wyatt
 

Grace was riding her bicycle with a friend in 2012 and lost control, flew over the handlebars and landed on her head. Grace was not wearing a helmet, her heart stopped beating and she was life flighted to a Columbus, Ohio hospital. There was very little hope for her survival. 

Surviving bleeding and swelling on the brain, a four day coma and her left side paralyzed, Grace recovered and moved into a rehab center. Once home, she took up painting. Grace's right hand had been broken so she, being right-handed, began painting with her left hand.

Since the accident, she has returned to college getting straight A's. She recently exhibited her post-injury artwork in Soho, NYC.

Grace continues to struggle with the unseen consequences of her TBI but relies on her faith and her determination to not be a victim of circumstances to get her through each trial.

 

 

 

ROCK THE WALK

Saturday, July 12, 2014
Zanesville High School Stadium
1301 Blue Ave | Zanesville, OH


Walk individually or start now to get your team together for our 3rd annual fundraising event. The goal of each team is to not only walk at the event, but to raise money for BrainSong. Prizes are awarded for the team and individual raising the most money, and most spirited and largest team.

Teams can have a lot of fun organizing activities and events to raise money  before the Walk. We’ve found that activities providing a service that people already spend money on (e.g., yard sales, spaghetti dinners, car washes, yard work, babysitting) are the most successful.

It's going to be a great event! Get ready!
