After being released from Craig Hospital, world renowned for spinal cord and brain injury rehabilitation, author Kimberly Faye began writing. “This book began as therapy and developed into something so much greater,” she says. In her new “Memoir of a Broken Brain: Falling Down and Getting Up Gracefully” (published by WestBow Press) she recounts her tale. Incapable of speech when she began, Faye’s story is a model of triumph of adversity.

“Memoir of a Broken Brain” is Faye’s story of surviving three accidents – in two months – that caused a life-altering traumatic brain injury. Readers will journey with her through the impasse of a broken brain, and experience her courage and determination to embrace her new identity and overcome obstacles from her past.

The book inspires readers to look for the miraculous in uncertain times:

Kimberly’s quest for survival sent her in search of the missing pieces of her past. She learned that survival is a multifaceted anvil that shapes our decisions and forges our future. Merely existing then becomes a double-edged sword: you may have managed to keep breathing, but are you really living? The only way for survival to triumph is to acknowledge the role of fear in the face of crisis: affirmed fear liberates; coddled fear incapacitates. Denial keeps us stuck!

“Life is an obstacle course,” Faye reminds readers, “that provides an opportunity to face challenges and achieve goals. There are times when it seems the odds are stacked against you. When you are faced with loss, be it physical and/or emotional health, financial security, divorce, or death, how will you face the obstacles in your life?”
