Introducing Emily’s Army!! Here we are, Warriors! Our team of TBI survivors joining together for the same cause: helping other survivors meet goals, gain support, take on challenges, and move forward in their healing process!
Marria and Emily
Marria is Emily’s caretaker and best friend! Marria helps Emily with doctor’s appointments, therapy, pain management, ADLs, but most importantly, companionship!
Fran works as mentor to our group. She is a renouned author and also has a son who has battled a brain injury. She has developed her website keys2concussion to help others heal naturally with diet and healthy lifestyle. Fran and Emily work together to develop tools that implement vitamins, oils, and diet to heal the brain along with helpful emotional support.
Maxine is actively involved in Emily’s Corner and other TBI groups. She is such a support to all who come in contact with her and a true fighter as there isn’t much help or TBI support in Northern Alberta Canada.
Her favorite quote is, “Your healing is about you. It doesn’t need a stamp of approval. Don’t worry about how long it takes or how ugly it may seem. It’s about you.”
Barb is the newest member of the team and a joy to get to know!
Here are her very touching words:
” It’s been nearly 4 years since I was a pedestrian struck by a vehicle. The disabilities I have endured have often felt as I imagine much like a prisoner trapped in solitary confinement. With all of my heart & soul and with every second, I aim to improve my life quality and my relationships – new and old.”
“Nat” has played a big part in helping others in the aftermath of TBI. As an active member of this group he is always supporting others by relating ideas that have helped him with his healing process and encourages the team to try new healthy foods, exercise, and drink more water.
Nat’s words to encourage: “Never give up, never give up, never give in!”
I said this in group:
“If you feel like you don’t matter…..remember you always matter to God and He cares. I care too.” 🤗💚
Emily’s favorite quote!
When there is rain there is a rainbow and when there is dark there are STARZ!! You my friend, are not alone!

Here is Emily’s amazing website!! Go ahead and see for yourself. Her story and journey towards healing is unbelievable!! Now, God is using her in powerful ways to come alongside of and help others struggling to move forward in their healing journey. You have to live through a brain injury to really be able to help others living this same reality. Many doctors can help but really there is very little research and support for TBI. This road is a very isolating and lonely one but I believe gaining support with other survivors is vital to our healing.
Emily and I have a favorite verse from Ecclesiastes:
If you or a loved one is recovering from a TBI, why not reach out and join our loving community here on Facebook? We all share the same passion to help, support, befriend, and encourage one another as we face daily challenges post TBI.
