For Soldiers Who are Fighting the War at Home with Brain Trauma

Attention All Soldiers - Welcome to New Brain Living Boot Camp.Today might be the day that recovery from battlefield trauma might take a different turn if the basis of recovery could be treated as just “one more combat mission”. When you arrived at boot camp to become a soldier, you were trained with discipline and drills to become the Soldier you are today.

New Brain Living Boot Camp will combine up to date scientific research, and brain training so you can learn how to train your brain not react to that place "where the brain has had enough"and most important provide hope that recovery is possible.

New Brain Living is a website where Soldiers who have brain trauma and the people who care for them can find answers and decide on a"battlefield plan" that is designed for their brain trauma

New Brain Living Bootcamp Training Program - Pilot Project

The New Brain Living concept was created to make some sense about the loss of identity associated with brain trauma. Helping our young soldiers re-find themselves through New Brain Living Bootcamp will allow these young men and women learn to live with their new brains.

We now live in an exciting time for brain research and brain plasticity will be the key to recovery and brain training is the base of the New Brain Living Bootcamp Program.

On May 14, 1997 at 4am in the morning I woke up and was paralyzed on the right side of my body. I had suffered a stroke at the age of 40.

On April 22, 2006 Cpl Randy Payne was killed in Afghanistan. Randy was from my home town and suddenly the war in Afghanistan was more than a news report.

New Brain Living Bootcamp is a combination of my recovery journey from brain trauma and the desire to let our returning soldiers know that “no soldier will be left behind” as they recover from their brain trauma.
