Quote: Dr Price herself is a brain injury survivor and her message to others is :“Refuse to let other people define your boundaries and enforce your limitations. The seeds of greatness are on the inside of you and they are waiting to be birthed. Hold onto your flexibility and sense of humor…you will need it on the ride of life! It is seldom a smooth ride but you can be the driver. There will be falls along the way but the difference between a success and a failure is choosing to get up one more time in whatever way you can!
