I learned some history about brain injury charities, it’s both pretty cool, and mind-numbing. In the 80s when Robin Easey was shot (1984) , there wasn’t anything in existence to support victims like him. What his wife heard was that it wouldn’t be surprising if she simply left. However, Glennis Easey isn’t someone to take the easy way out, at all. Not only did she say with the man to whom she married, but she founded The Wings of Phoenix. It began in 2001, and is dedicated to providing team based brain injury rehabilitation for persons with an acquired brain injury (sports related injury, fall, stroke, aneurysm, anoxia, etc).
I’m not sure, but I think that the name is from the phoenix, an entity who rises both brighter, and stronger, after it’s thought to be at an end.
