How I Got Better From A Traumatic Brain Injury
For anyone who ever had a TBI, past or present
by Madeleine Welton

Both incredibly informative and deeply heart-rending, How I Survived a Traumatic Brain Injury tells the story of author Madeleine Welton’s recovery after she sustained a traumatic brain injury in 1993. Her moving account of learning to walk, talk, and swallow again while raising two young boys is contextualized within a well-informed look at the struggles that face many TBI survivors when it comes to receiving medical treatment and the recovery process in general. Having struggled while waiting for medical technology to catch up to the effects of her injury, Welton’s emphasis on the importance of the SPECT scan is backed up by research that is thorough yet easily digestible, perfect for those who have had their own brains’ functionality impacted by a TBI. Harrowing, heartening, and well-researched, in How I Survived a Traumatic Brain Injury, survivors and their loved ones alike are sure to discover both a wealth of helpful information and a deep sense of hope regarding the process they’re moving through.

Madeleine Welton is a mother and eager to help those who have experienced traumatic brain injuries through their recovery processes. Using her own experience surviving a TBI that left her in a coma for twenty-six days followed by almost two decades of recovery, she was inspired to pen this, her first book. She lives in Mississauga, Ontario, with her husband of thirty-one years and shares custody of her younger sons’ eight-year-old rescue dog, Duke. Duke likes to accompany Madeleine when she is hiking, gardening and especially swimming.
