            Paper Cranes: A mother's story of hope, courage and determination
              

            Paper Cranes: A mother's story of hope, courage and determination (PDF ebook – 1st edition)

            By Koenig, Cheryl

            At the age of twelve, Cheryl Koenig's son Jonathan was involved in a horrific car accident. He was given very little chance of survival, and when he did miraculously pull through, doctors predicted that due to his extremely severe traumatic brain injury, he would most likely neve...r walk, talk or even eat again. Cheryl refused to accept this prognosis and set out on a relentless and ultimately successful quest to save her son and prove the medical profession wrong. Her fervent hope that he would one day be well again was poignantly expressed by his many school friends who filled their school prayer room with hundreds of handmade paper cranes, symbols of hope and healing. PAPER CRANES tells the story of Jonathan's extraordinary courage and the Koenig family's unceasing drive to help him defy the ominous predictions. The book outlines their desperate search for knowledge in the area of recovery from traumatic brain injury, set against the background of Cheryl's heartfelt grief, denial, and anger. At the same time she and her husband were forced to deal with the trials and tribulations of the legal system in their search for justice for their son. Now, ten years since his horrific accident, Jonathan has completed a TAFE course and is currently learning to drive. He can walk well, and has just begun to run; he can snow ski; swim laps; play tennis and astounds many with his piano-playing skills. All this as well as working five days a week in three part-time jobs! The message that shines through is that together with persistence, determination, family and love, almost any challenge can be faced and conquered. If we maintain hope in the face of adversity, we can all achieve what some may see as impossible dreams. Most importantly this inspirational, uplifting story demonstrates that with the right attitude it is possible to determine your own destiny regardless of what life throws in your path. Cheryl Koenig won the NSW Woman of the Year Award for raising awareness ab

            Here is a woman's touching story about her daily struggles as a caregiver to her mother who suffers from Alzheimer's disease and how God's presence in her life has helped lessen her burden. The author draws from her own personal experiences to provide readers with tips and sugges...tions on how to make homes safe for Alzheimer's patients, how to recognize warning signs of the disease, and how to avoid emotional drain and strain. This journal-like account courageously reveals the heartbreaking realities of having a mother who does not recognize her own daughter and the challenges associated with caring for her at home. Reminding its audience to be angry at the disease, not the loved one, this insightful book will help improve the lives of caregivers and loved ones with Alzheimer's and offers solace amidst the turbulence of caring for someone stricken with this serious condition.
