Summary

This is our most unique episode yet! Joe hosts weekly support groups for brain injury survivors on Clubhouse and this past week with the help of Michael Shutt, Mackenzie Lea and Adrian Treadway, the community hijacked the support group to show their appreciation for all that Joe has done for them individually (about 30 survivors on the audio recording) and the community as a whole. It’s a beautiful tribute to Joe but also a testament to the power of community especially through a tough experience like recovering from a brain injury.
