Regarding patients with traumatic brain injuries, Terri Schiavo said, “Where there’s life, there’s hope.” Our courageous guests this week:
Brenden and Nicole Flynn, husband and wife who each suffered profound brain injury before they met. Disregarding doctors’ advice, their families refused to give up hope. Thanks to rehabilitation and positive motivation, Brenden and Nicole made incredible recoveries.
Bobby Schindler, brother of Terri Schiavo and executive director of the Terri Schiavo Life and Hope Network. He works to dispel the stigma that brain injured patients face and fights for their right to basic and continued care.
Country music artist Collin Raye, whose first granddaughter suffered from a brain disorder that resisted diagnosis. Though the prognosis was grim, Collin never gave up searching for answers and
Eric Edmundson, a soldier left comatose with anoxic brain injury after he was involved in an IED explosion in Iraq in 2005. After multiple surgeries, the prognosis for Eric’s quality of life was poor. But his father, Ed, advocated for his son and researched the best place for Eric to receive acute rehabilitation.
