SPEAK OUT! #1 Itty-Bitty GIANT Steps

SPEAK OUT! Itty-Bitty Giant Steps will provide a venue for brain-injury survivors and caregivers to shout out their accomplishments of the week.

If you have an Itty-Bitty Giant Step and you would like to share it, just send me an email at donnaodonnellfigurski@gmail.com. It need only be a sentence. I’ll gather the accomplishments and post them with your name on my blog approximately once a week. (If you do not want your last name to be posted, please tell me in your email.)

I hope we have millions of Itty-Bitty Giant Steps.


Here are this week’s Itty-Bitty Giant Steps.

My Itty-Bitty Giant Step is that I started my blog finally and I’m going back to school to become a speech pathologist. Go me! It feels good to accomplish things I never would’ve done before.

Cheri Richardson Hicks

On May 3, I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing – with a 3.64 GPA and 16 years post TBI. It took many “Itty-Bitty Giant Steps” and a lot of patience to get to this point. Now I will have plenty of “patients” to go with it. LOL. Thank you for gathering this, Donna!

Erin Lea Beville

My dream is to walk a 5K race (3.1 miles) in an hour. I reached 1.6 miles in 35 minutes on a treadmill (while holding on to the handrails, of course!).

David Figurski

I was able to stand on my right foot (my “impaired” side) while holding my left foot off the ground and not hold onto anything for 33 seconds.  My therapist’s time goal for me was 30 seconds.
