SPEAK OUT! Faces of Brain Injury – Brazyl Ward

Brain Injury is NOT Discriminating!
(submitted by Brazyl’s mother and caregiver, Tiffany Ward)
Hello everyone! I want to share with you the story of my daughter, Brazyl, who is a traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivor. Brazyl was struck by a hit-and-run driver on Halloween night 2013, while we were crossing the street after a Trick-or-Treat event at our nearby church. The driver was going 100 mph. He was never caught. Brazyl was in a coma for two months. She had to have a piece of her skull removed to save her life. Almost two years later, Brazyl is still fighting and still healing. I had to quit my job to take care of my six-year-old fulltime. I was fighting my own depression, anxiety, and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) due to witnessing my daughter being hit. I decided to write a book about our family’s struggle and testimony. Brazyl was only given a 10% chance of survival, but she fought hard and made it! I’m so proud of my baby girl!
To learn more about Brazyl and her family, go to Tiffany Ward’s website, Tragedy to Testimony: A Family’s Fight to Cope. This is also the title of the book Tiffany wrote to tell Brazyl’s story.
