Today the article about your journey came out in the Metro Section of Washington Post. We hope that it creates greater awareness about the life changing power of Music Therapy and provides hope and encouragement to others struggling to recover from Traumatic Brain Injuries.

You are spending your summer getting stronger in every way; physically, emotionally, spiritually. Your humor and wit are keeping pace! As your friends and family challenge you to reach a little further and dig a little deeper, we find more often than not we are struggling to keep up with you!
A week in Emerald Isle, NC allowed us to spend time with Austin and visit him at Duke's Marine Lab in Beaufort. You created new football passes on the beach with pals Tori and Nick and practiced yoga moves and guitar in the evenings. You even out "chilled" Cousin Susan in a very competitive beach lounging contest!
Its good to be back at BrightWood now, with just 3 1/2 weeks until your next surgery, we will relish every moment together, inspired by your determination and optimism. Onward and Upward, Champ!
With Love and Gratitude to your amazing brother, father, friends, extended family, mentors, teachers, doctors, nurses, and many followers who believe in you and sustain us all.
