Overview

After a lifetime of poor choices Joan Miller didn’t believe in happy endings. Then she met John and discovered she could choose a different path. With the loving husband, the cute suburban house and even the dog, Joan’s life was turning around.

Then it ended.

After the car crash left her body broken and her mind shattered, Joan had to begin again. She endured years of therapy re-learning to swallow, to walk and talk, to think and to function in a world she no longer recognized. Along the way she discovered her unexpected destiny as a mentor, an advocate and a public speaker.

Joan has been given a second chance and is determined to make it count. Whether it’s starting a support group for fellow brain injury survivors, speaking out on the dangers of drunk driving or teaching teens about the power of making better choices, Joan is on a mission to change the world.
