Lynn Delguadio of Morrisville had a full life until 80 pounds of weight came crashing down on her head at the gym in 2014, resulting in a traumatic brain and spinal cord injury. Emily Rodriguez of New York City sustained a TBI in a terrible car accident and wasn’t expected to walk or talk again. Both are doing well today. We’ll also learn from a mother’s perspective; Jackie Pilgrim of Durham has a son with a Traumatic Brain Injury and other health concerns. All of these women have developed inspiring ways of coping. Jackie is a poet, blogger, and advocate. Lynn – who has made a heroic recovery – recently published a book on her experience called Altered on Impact. Emily has a prayer project focused on 2,000 New York City Schools, which she is focusing on one at a time.
