Belinda Sowers suffered a traumatic brain injury from a car accident on January 1, 1987. She was thrown from the car and found to have a severe head injury. An acrylic plate was put in her head and she spent four months in the hospital, learning to walk and use her left hand.
She still deals with many things associated to her TBI, but has COMPLETED three years of college, had a son and owned her own business for ten years.
Belinda feels like a different person, but has accepted and learned to be thankful for who she has become. She loves her life and thanks God for the second chance.
Although recovery may take years, Belinda feels that a major step in recovery, is accepting the 'new you' and that after doing so, the 'WORLD is yours to EXPLORE.'
