“LIGHTS, COMA, ACTION!”
This book tells the story of who I was, how I sustained a serious brain injury, and my successful recovery process: Lights, Coma, Action!
On the one year anniversary of my brain injury, I began to write about where I was one year ago on the anniversaries of each important event as they happened. I felt compelled to write. This process has been an intense and life-changing experience for me, as well as for so many others. I first set out to write about my experience with a blog: “Adventures in Brain Injury.” I hoped that by sharing my story, I could better inform friends and family about my progress, hardships, and overall condition. Following that first post was a profound discovery of meticulous self-study. I had tapped into a powerful and important interface that began to inform hundreds of other survivors and their families. After one year of writing on these anniversaries, I had written over 60,000 words, documenting my recovery.
Inspired by my story and aided by my experience, it didn’t take long before I was entertaining a small international audience who encouraged me to write about the details of my life and my success throughout my recovery process. This is the story of the year that followed my traumatic brain injury. As I recovered, my friends began to call me “Mr. Bounce” (because I seemed to “bounce right back!”). The fact is that I did not bounce. Recovery from a brain injury is a haul, not a bounce. It is a haul for everyone involved.
At first, I thought that this blog was going to be my book, but I began to realize that it was not. The Cavin Bounce blog is like a pre-draft of my book. It tells a dual narrative of what the story is that I am telling, but also of my mental state when I am writing each piece. I use the record of this blog in order to write my book. The first chapter is available for download here, and the book will be available by October 2017 at the very latest. In the meantime, I aim to do more than just spread awareness about TBI. I now work to provide real tools in order to help other survivors, their friends, and their families. This has become more than just my adventures in brain injury. This has become a march to improve neurorehabilitation, and you are a part of it.
How You Can Help:
Devastated by news of Cavin’s accident, the Balaster’s found very little of the readily available information on traumatic brain injury to be helpful. Cavin has become dedicated to providing hope and real world solutions to families affected by brain injury. Because every brain injury is different, Cavin is dedicated to improving the standard model for neuro-rehabilitation to better support the brain to heal itself safely.
By purchasing “Lights, Coma, Action,” working with Cavin, or donating to support his work, you are helping to share Cavin’s inspiring story and provide useful information to survivors who’s lives, and the lives of those who care for them, could be improved.
