First of all, thank you to all who came to one of my author events in New Hampshire last month. And thank you to all who bought a book and have told others about it.
For my launch on October 15, dear friends flew in from the west coast, and many other friends and family came from far and near.
I'm beyond grateful that you made room in your
busy schedules to be there for me. Evelyn Staudinger, my professor from Wheaton College even surprised me at the book launch
It's clear to me that all of the work that my mother and I put into writing this book, was worthwhile.
It seems to strike a cord with readers,
hey have their own Traumatic Brain Injury story or not. They tell me that our story gives them hope and inspiration.
In honor of Veterans Day, I will present my autobiographical Keynote Speech, "A Distant Memory," at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, Thursday, November 10.
The event is
sponsored by Veterans Equine Therapeutic Services, a nonprofit that the
J. Field Foundation entered into a partnership with last year. We are coming together to honor the sacrifices made by our veterans and their families.
Proceeds from the event will go to VETS, to help serve veterans suffering from TBI.
The following week, I will speak at the Madison, Connecticut library, as a guest of Vista Life Innovations.
Vista Life Innovations is a full-service organization supporting individuals with disabilities throughout the various stages of life.
Vista's main goal is to imagine possibilities ... and Empower lives. I am so proud to work with them. Vista clients, and all individuals with various disabilities and their families, as well as the general public will attend.
Vista staff members will receive education credits for attending.Their Executive Director wants those working with physically and/or mentally disabled people to hear about the success I achieved and how I continue to improve all these years after my accident.
Field Foundation has greatly increased its reach by partnering with Vista and VETS. Our young foundation is growing.
So much is happening.
