After sustaining a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) as a result of a fall on the ice in February of 2014, Amy has been passionate about raising awareness of this invisible injury that affects 2.5 million Americans each year.
She has been traveling the country speaking to groups of survivors and caregivers to let them know they are not alone in their journey. She absolutely loves meeting other amazing survivors and hearing their stories www.facesoftbi.com/speaking
She also attends Brain Injury Awareness Day at our Nation's Captiol each March (March 22, 2017) to lobby and meet with her senators and congress members -- encouraging them to join the Congressional Brain Injury Task Force.
She does all of this without pay or travel reimbursements, as most of these groups have no budget for speakers. Which is where YOU come in!! Every dollar donated will go directly towards Amy's advocacy efforts -- particularly Washington DC this coming March 22nd.
Amy has published two books on the subject: "Life With a Traumatic Brain Injury: Finding the Road Back to Normal" which is a collection of her stories originally published on the Huffington Post. Her second book "Surviving Brain Injury: Stories of Strength and Inspiration" is a collection of stories written by other survivors and caregivers. www.facesoftbi.com/books
