Coffee With the Authors
Join us in a virtual setting for a coffee talk with author of The Phoenix Rising: A True Story of Survival, Helen Ross Lee.
Helen Ross Lee’s memoir The Phoenix Rising shows us a successful nurse, mum, and hang-gliding champion at the top of her game. In 2008, she suffered a tragic accident in a practice takeoff maneuver that resulted in a grievous traumatic brain injury (TBI), which precipitated a coma and temporary amnesia. Helen refused to give up or give in, regardless of the gloomy prognosis from medical experts. Her ten-year struggle to rehabilitate and return to work (with the support of her family) will inspire anyone who has experienced or cared for someone with stroke, TBI, and other long term chronic illness.
