The author desires to share her story, photographs and her love of inspirational quotations, and offer to brain injury survivors, caregivers, and even those who are challenged with other illnesses and dis-Abilities, the impetus to realize that the art of photography can offer a means to cope, heal, and find joy~in a simple photograph.
