Why I’m Participating: In 2011 my daughter sustained a traumatic brain injury that took our family on a long, unexpected journey to recovery. Her sports concussion left her with permanent scaring on the front lobe of her brain. She now has visual and seizure disorders she will manage for the rest of her life. On our brain injury journey I saw gaps and needs and became a strong advocate for brain injury education, awareness, prevention and treatment. I saw how families struggle for resources and support. I started the New Beginnings Brain Injury Support Group here in Gwinnett and learned that Annandale had a tremendous program for brain injury survivors. I am excited to be a part of the Kiss A Pig Campaign this year to help people living with brain injury and their families feel that they are not forgotten, but have a place at Annandale that offers them hope, help and support as they live with the aftermath of brain injury.
