People live their day to day life without realizing that it could be their last. Recently we were reached out by Alicia Payne Murie, the founder and director of TBI Raiders.
TBI stands for traumatic brain injury, she herself experienced this and wants to help out others because not many are aware and there is also not many support groups for this. Murie was broadsided in a car accident which caused her to break three ribs and also have her skull smashed from both the right and left side.
Murie blacked out and went into a coma for a month. Throughout her whole experience she had a lot of support from family, dance friends, and others. Ever since this incident she has gone out of her way to help out others that are going through similar situations. She has been working on a bill with the help of a friend with the funding part.
In 2012 Murie met with Lt. Gov. Lamb to work on what can be done to help TBI survivors. Her bill is HB2826, which falls under “Public Health and Safety”.The bill has gone through the first and second reading but not yet processed.
Murie had a lot of faith throughout her recovery and something she would advise to someone or even a family member of someone going through this would be “Don't ever give up and whatever you do never say never even when you think you've taken your last step.”
She is doing a lot for this cause and also has volunteer options for anyone wanting to help out. There are a lot of ways to volunteer. For example, Reporter,Photographer,Web designer, Poster designer and many other slots are open to willing volunteers. She has her own website, Facebook page, and Twitter Account.
