    34. You Can't Erase the Past with Madison Thacker - Concussion, School, & Soccer

    Dealing with the physical challenges you may face as the result of a head injury is one thing, grieving who you were before your injury is another. 

    Today we talk to Madison Thacker who was a passionate soccer player in high school until her third concussion ended her career. Her injuries inspired her to chase a career in journalism in order to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the struggles of injured athletes, especially those who have suffered concussions. We discuss what it’s like for brain-injury survivors to grieve the people we were before the injury, how we tend to take out our frustrations on those closest to us, and how to cope with our emotions while trying to come to terms with who we are now. We also talk about the challenges of accepting what’s happened in order to start telling our stories to others and the power of those stories, so tune in to hear Madison’s!

    30. Look at the View with Jamie MoCrazy - Brain Injury, Motivation, & Goals

    30. Look at the View with Jamie MoCrazy - Brain Injury, Motivation, & Goals

    “Jamie is never going to live independently, she’s never going to recover fully, she won’t ski again, she probably won’t even walk again.” This is what doctors told the family of skier Jamie MoCrazy who suffered a life-threatening brain injury while performing a double flat spin during the 2015 World Tour Finals. Jamie was in a coma for 10 days. When she woke up, she suffered from amnesia and the right side of her body was paralyzed. After her miraculous recovery, Jamie became a motivational speaker and made it her mission to help others recover from unexpected trauma, overcome adversity, and climb new peaks on the journey of life.

    Today she joins us to talk about her miraculous recovery. She explains how her hiking metaphor came about, how she stops to “Look at the view” when she needs a break, and how this translates into other aspects of her life. As a motivational speaker, she talks about achieving your goals, ignoring the ceilings placed on you, and the importance of baby steps. To be encouraged and empowered to love and fully accept your daily personal best, tune in today!
