Back to the Beginning: Natasha Richardson 1963 – 2009 (posted Mar. 18, 2009)


If you’ve watched any news lately, you may have already heard actress Natasha Richardson fell on the ski slopes last weekend and suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury. (Falls are the number one cause of TBI).

Ever since I heard I’ve been praying a lot for them, coming from a place of deep knowing, it is the least I could do. Naturally, as a person with TBI, such stories pull at my heart…a lot…no matter who they happen to.

Brain Injury is odd. One moment skiing, next moment a fall, she joked about it, later suffered from not feeling well, headache, admitted to the hospital and then on life support.

I think the name Traumatic Brain Injury is quite accurate, the trauma does not start and end with the accident itself, it has millions of ongoing rippling affects to the sufferer, community, and family.

She was the beloved wife of Liam Neeson, and mother of their two beautiful sons, daughter of Vanessa Redgrave.

Please keep these folks in your prayers. No matter who is affected by TBI, they need our compassion, support, prayers and love. We who have a deep sense of knowing this difficult path must light the path for those who find themselves in this same journey.

TBI does not discriminate, we are not alone. We all suffer the same, whether pauper or king, we are all in the same boat.

About Resilient Heart

TBI x3, that's me! If you had a Traumatic Brain Injury (or Injuries!) and knew you might not remember dates, events, people, etc., would you live each day differently? Would you give more, forgive more, heal more? I am. The statistics for me developing Dementia or Alzheimer's is a high possibility - one, because of the TBIs, and two - because I'm genetically predisposed. Come with me as this present moment is all we know we have... Wishing you all the best - today & always. Blessings, Love & Peace, RH
