They were both twenty-something’s living productive and successful lives when all of a sudden they were both struck by different types of brain injuries. Kara suffered a massive stroke, and Chris was in a coma that left him paralyzed after a bout with meningitis and encephalitis. Despite facing tough odds, the two spent countless hours in therapy, tirelessly working to regain control and triumph over their brain injuries.

Despite being told they would not return to their previously productive lifestyle, this is the true story of Kara and Chris’s personal and combined efforts to return to a “normal” life.
