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 an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are on Facebook, you can simply send a Private Message to me. It need only be a sentence or two. 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 or Private Message.)
I hope we have millions of Itty-Bitty Giant Steps.
Here is this week’s Itty-Bitty GIANT Step
David Figurski (survivor) … Because my speech has been affected by partly paralyzed vocal chords and tongue, I was worried that my comments at my father’s funeral Mass would not be understood. On top of that, I was beginning to lose my voice from speaking with so many people the day before at the funeral parlor. But, with Donna’s support as she balanced me, I walked to the podium, and I gave my comments. For ten minutes, I gave them – careful to speak slowly and enunciate every sound.
Several people came up to me afterward and said that they had no problem understanding me. It’s something I had wanted to do to honor my 95-year-old father. I was happy and proud that I did.
YOU did it!
Congratulations to contributors!
