In spite of the overwhelming exhaustion, misunderstanding and the long process of recovery, there is hope in the journey

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention describes traumatic brain injury as a major cause of death and disability in the United States and that those who survive it may face short-term effects or long-term disabilities. Author Lydia Greear knows how devastating traumatic brain injury can be; her adult son, Thaddeus, suffered from Traumatic Brain Injury, after being hit by a speeding vehicle. The horrific accident marked the beginning of a long and painful journey not just for Thaddeus but for his loved ones.

In “Traumatic Brain Injury: A Caregiver’s Journey” (published by Xlibris), Greear shares a powerful account of her experiences as Thaddeus’ caregiver. Her story sheds light on the challenges they faced as a family and, ultimately, it shines a beacon of hope to patients, families and caregivers alike.

“Traumatic Brain Injury” is an emotionally charged true story of a mother challenged by the unknown and a family facing overwhelming crisis. Readers will see Greear’s passion and her resolve to keep a positive attitude as she navigates her way through great odds.

“In spite of the overwhelming exhaustion, misunderstanding and the long process of recovery, there is hope in the journey,” Greear says.
