Life is a Real Gift

My name is Tammi, and on January 27,1995, I was in an auto/pedestrian accident. As a result of the accident I received a severe traumatic brain injury and pelvic fracture. Life is a real challenge now, I have my good day, alot more bad days than use to before the accident.

I have been so blessed since my accident I have alot of support from family, friends and members of the community.

I am a Community Advocate my goals are to try to Educate people about traumatic brain injury, and also help other traumatic brain injury survivors and other individual's with disabilities. To say Thank You to our Soldiers for serving. Be supportive of our soldiers coming home with traumatic brain injury and PTSD, their lives will never be the same.

I have really learned to appreciate life. I am proud
of who I am. Life is a Gift. I look at Life as a Real Adventure.
