October 2013 was Abby's last "Normal Day" before life went pear-shaped.
Seven years followed, consumed by a slew of hospital visits, tests, and treatment attempts. Neurosurgeons decided removing a bit of her cerebellum to make more room for her brain stem and spinal cord might be a small step towards starting to reclaim her life.
Conversations about brain injury and related neurological conditions need to happen. HEADSTRONG was created to provide space for those stories.
HEADSTRONG supports and promotes the efforts of SameYou, a charity founded by brain hemorrhage survivor Emilia Clarke to raise awareness of brain injury, and promote and improve neurorehabilitation for all patients.
Welcome to HEADSTRONG
A collaborative space to discuss brain injury and neurorehabilitation in all its messy, complex, painful, triumphant glory
Untangling the complicated “after” of brain injury, one story at a time. Because everyone deserves a chance at recovery.
