Topics Our Speakers Will Cover
Traumatic Brain Injury
It can happen to anyone and is a life changing event. Brain injury happens in many ways and can affect behaviors, feelings, thinking, motor skills and virtually everything changes. Listen to Mr. Rocky, Dr. Anderson and Dylan to learn more
Brain Tumors are the 2nd leading cause of cancerous deaths in children. It changes everything and there are residual physical, cognitive, emotional and behavioral results that often destroy jobs, relationships and friendships. Listen to Dylan and learn how to cope!
Overcoming Substance Abuse & Mental Illness
Billions of dollars are spent each year dealing with all of the aftermath of addiction in our country yet there are few programs that have been effective in treating. Linda, Mr. Rocky and Dylan have overcome the odds and helped countless others to do the same.
Research is showing that the breakdown of the family has devastating effects on children as they are transitioned from place to place and an entourage of “significant others” that may or may not have their best interest at heart. Linda will share the solutions to the breakdown of the family from her own experience.
This is a topic no one likes to talk about but as of 8/23/2016 there have been 59,299,091 abortions in the United States. The effects on all involved can be devastating, if not right away, then up the road. There is always someone in the audience when Linda speaks that is hurting. Don’t miss this.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder doesn’t just happen to veterans. Though Pastor Yauo Yang is going to talk about surviving Iraq, every other speaker has gotten professional help for dealing with the post traumatic stress they experiencesd over the situations, injustices and tragedies they have been through
Kids end up in foster care for a variety of reasons. None of them are good because it takes alot of bad things to happen before anyone is going to spend the money to put a child in foster care. Dylan is a remarkable young man who will share how to not let that get you down but to use it to leave your legacy of hope.
When bad things happen to good people you ask why, where is God and what good could possibly come of all that you have gone through. These speakers will make it very clear that their tragedy is now their opportunity to change lives and make an impact by sharing how they were brought into grace by Gods love
