Despite Everything: Joy- Triumph over Trauma

More than my brain injury
This is really a story of love and compassion, and the strength provided by family and friends – and even strangers. When tragedy strikes, life is altered forever. Our loved one survived a traumatic brain injury, but the fallout affects all of us who know that survivor. “It takes a village” is not merely a meme, it’s true. Our family has benefited from many generous resources, as well as services provided by the Brain Injury Association programs. We count on humor and patience to sustain us, and a community to uphold us when things are tough. Zock is a survivor, and he has a great sense of humor. Despite everything, joy is a big part of how we get through it all.
