summary:

September is National Chiari Awareness Month, so in this episode our host Joe is talking with Abby Jarman who not only a chiari survivor but also an amazing advocate for the brain injury community through her organization, HeadStrong and as an ambassador for the nonprofit, SameYou. She shares her journey of struggling with health issues as a kid and and then later undergoing brain surgery in her twenties to address her chiari malformation. They also talk about the problems with the American healthcare system in terms of supporting brain injury survivors through recovery, and how they both use humor and positivity to stay strong when facing challenges. If you are a brain injury survivor looking for support or a normie who wants to know more about brain injury, go check out HeadStrong!
