2013-1220 Christmas JammiesDisclaimer: When I began writing this post, I had absolutely no intention of writing about brain injury, adversity, recovery, or anything related to the usual topics of this blog. I will continue blogging about brain injury, adversity, and recovery in two days. Neither the post nor video are an attempt to show favoritism of a given culture, religion, or holiday; I simply thought readers of this post would enjoy the family’s creativity.

Call to Action

Tell your family and friends what you did this year or at least summarize your stories in a journal.

Even after brain surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments to eradicate his brain cancer, Scott continued to work; continued to study; and earned professional certifications from the Project Management Institute, American Society of Quality, and Stanford University School of Professional Development.
