Personal stories from brain injury survivors and their caregivers.
Lee Glynn is from Skowhegan, Maine. He spent his whole career in the retail automotive industry, from tires to parts to whole cars. He has sold automobiles in 40 states as the cofounder of The Wolfington Group. He sold his share of the business and retired to farming in 2011. Until his life took an unexpected turn in late 2017 when a hemorrhagic stroke left a brain injury that changed Lee and the course of his life. Lee is active within the brain injury community; you may know him from a support group that you attend. He believes that a support group that he attended may have saved his life. From that group he had the opportunity to start others in Waterville, Augusta and Skowhegan. He volunteers as a brain injury survivor on the steering committee of the Brain Injury Association of America, Maine chapter, and as a bridge between the Maine Statewide Independent Living Council and the Maine Acquired Brain Injury Advisory Council where he acts as co-chair. He volunteers on the steering committee for the Brewer Rehabilitation Center and attends their monthly support group. His favorite topic, though, is recovery and the concert of beliefs, emotions and physical efforts that aid in that process.

Faith and Recovery
Mickey lives in Davison, Michigan.

He had recently sold both of the schools to work as the head chaplain at a large county jail in the heart of Flint, Michigan.
He served in the U.S. Army where he met his wife of 27n years. His first goal after stroke was to walk across the stage for his college graduation. You can find Mickey on Facebook and he’d love to meet you and discuss faith of any kind. Mickey has not only studied Christianity, but has also studied Islam, Hinduism, Budism, Odinism, Mormonism, Jehovahs Witness, and more. Faith is his passion. His favorite Bible verse is Phillippians 1: 6 - “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Post stroke Mickey returned to the jail to teach Bible to inmates every Monday night
