Dixie F-S Coskie
Dixie Coskie speaks from the heart, relating the story of her son’s recovery from a severe traumatic brain injury. Through sharing her personal and emotionally powerful perspective, she highlights the challenges and lifetime changes that a devastating medical condition can bring, but also the choices that caregivers, parents, friends, and healthcare providers can make to cope and defeat seemingly overwhelming obstacles. Dixie’s survival tips and tools offer hope for other parents and families to not just survive this devastating injury, but to thrive.
