Welcome to the website of TBI Journey.  TBI Journey stands for Traumatic Brain Injury Journey.  If you or someone you know or love has had a Traumatic Brain Injury or any other form of Brain Injury then you know that the road that they will travel will be very much like a journey full of ups and downs as well as highs and lows.  Some parts of the journey are easier than others and some more enjoyable.  But like all journeys, whether it was one you chose to take or one that was forced upon you, it will become a part of who you are once you've reached the journey's end.

This website is dedicated to those who have and do live with Brain Injuries every day, their families, supporters and caregivers.

The resources provided throughout this website as well as on the Helpful Links page are there to make your journey easier.

Over 1.4 million people sustain a brain injury each year in the United States. Add to that the number of returning veterans with a brain injury and the numbers are staggering. The Brain Injury Survival Kit: 365 Tips, Tools & Tricks to Deal with Cognitive Function Loss aims to give brain injury survivors, their families, and loved ones the strategies they need to improve brain function and quality of life.  This book is a comprehensive set of tips, techniques, and life-task shortcuts that author Cheryle Sullivan, MD has compiled from her personal experience.  Click here for more information about this book.

The author, Cheryle Sullivan MD, was born and raised in Kingsford, Michigan, which is located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.  After receiving her MD degree in 1983 from Michigan State University's College of Human Medicine, she worked as a family practice MD in Michigan and Colorado.  Cheryle suffered a brain injury in 2002, at which point she transitioned into doing community education presentations for the Kaiser Permante Prevention Department.  She also (as well as presenting) participated in physician training to provide culturally competent care for diverse populations including persons with disabilities.  Since leaving Colorado she has been providing Brain Injury education to community groups and health care professionals.
