Thank you Colin for volunteering your time to take these.
This Wednesday is Founders’ Day and we have some really great items for this year’s Silent Auction. There will be jewelry, beer baskets, delta swag bags, leafs tickets, raptors tickets and much more! Make sure to bring cash and/or cheque, as we will not be accepting IOUs. Prizes go to the highest bidder with payment on site.
Also, a reminder to convert you change from the change jar challenge into either bills or a cheque and hand those in at the registration table. Diamonds vs. dolphins!
PS. if you have any last minute items you would like to donate to the Silent Auction please e-mail me asap at firstname.lastname@example.org
As you may remember, I crowdfunded an update to Concussion Is Brain Injury back in 2016. I’m pleased to announce that it’s finally launched!
Kirkus Reviews: “the intricate details of the author’s experience are riveting and enlightening.”
After many years of incubation, Concussion Is Brain Injury is re-birthed with a brand-new reader-friendly structure, all-new chapters, and updated information on my newest (experimental) treatments. The Treating the Neurons and Me edition tells my story in all its rawness and, in separate sections, outlines the lessons I learned, the treatments I underwent that dramatically healed — and keep healing — my damaged brain. I’ve written it for people with brain injury and those who know people with brain injury, with sections and related blog pages for those who want to know more about the technical details.
Self-Publishing Review: “Jeejeebhoy’s tale is highly emotional…uplifting, while giving a realistic view of recovery.”
Brain injury is a hidden epidemic and unfortunately is not treated under the current standard of care. Although fellow Torontonians like Dr. Norman Doidge have spread the news about the neuroplasticity of the brain and treatments harnessing that, most people with brain injury remain untreated. As I write: “traditional rehabilitation, involving cognitive therapy and rest, were ineffective.” Rest and strategies are not treatment. My goal in writing Concussion Is Brain Injury: Treating the Neurons and Me is to change that and give people knowledge of how they can begin to heal their brain.
Concussion Is Brain Injury: Treating the Neurons and Me is out now in paperback or ebook. Please check out my website page on it for all the details.
With Founders’ Day fast approaching, reminder to everyone about the change challenge Samantha Goodwill started last year! I hope everyone has been adding their spare change to the jars that were distributed at last Founders’ Day.
Make sure to convert all your change into a cheque and bring it to this Founders’ Day so we can calculate who the winning team is – will it be the Diamonds or the Dolphins?! Can’t wait to find out.
*All proceeds going to POGO!
