Living Miracles

Posted on January 15, 2011 at 3:45 PM

Last Saturday, Rep. Gabby Giffords of Arizona suffered a gunshot to the head. Because so very few of us have survived this kind of an injury, there has been much news coverage on this story. The media has been looking for survivors of similiar inujuries and they found my story. This past week I was contacted and interviewed by ABC news and WOSU NPR news. I've also been contacted by a couple other news sources but nothing ever materialized. Below is the link to the ABC news story titled  "Living Miracles: Survivors of Gunshots to the Head."



Also this coming Tuesday, January 18 my NPR interview will be aired on WOSU radio 89.7 in Columbus.  

Here is the link to this interview:




I am truly hoping that my story can be a source of hope for Congresswoman Giffords and her family. I know in my own situation, my family and I needed to hear stories of inspiration. I'm praying that Congresswoman Giffords makes a full recovery.


Please continue to not only keep me in your prayers, but also everyone else who has sufferred a TBI including Rep Giffords.

Wow Rachel that is very cool. You know, I thought about you as soon as I heard about the shooting and how far you have come. I hope too, that your life will be an inspiration to Gabby as well and for those who have been shot like yourselves. You inspire me too, when I feel like I can't take another pain or another stressful event, I remember what you have gone thru and stop complaining and ask God to forgive my selfishness.
