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. Brazyl Ward 1 060215He 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. Brazyl Ward 2 060215 10995616_1017057208304496_985199258378217371_nI 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 Ward 3 060215Brazyl was only given a 10% chance of survival, but she fought hard and made it! Brazyl Ward Pre TBI  0602151459273_10202437998854496_1528207085_nI’m so proud of my baby girl!
