February 18, 2021 - Parenting a Child with a TBI: Advocacy, Grief, and the Power of Peer Support.
Karen Kaizuka’s son suffered a sports-related brain injury about ten years ago, and, like many parents, she stood by his side during each step of his recovery. She also became deeply involved in the brain injury community through her work in healthcare and as the current Chairperson of Washington’s Traumatic Brain Injury Council. In this episode of Brain Injury Today, Karen speaks with BIAWA Executive Director Deborah Crawley about the unique process parents go through, finding hope amongst those who had been in her shoes, learning advocacy, and her ongoing quest to improve the support systems available to brain injury survivors and their families.
