Countdown to Cloud 9: Gemma

Gemma had an experience this past fall that made her feel like she was on cloud nine:

Last year in September, me and my brother Graeme went to Love Your Brain (LYB) in Jefferson, Maine. The LYB retreats started after a famous snowboarder, Kevin Pierce, had a traumatic brain injury.

(Learn more about Kevin Pierce’s experience and brain injury here.)

Kevin Pierce is also a big idol of mine. I got to meet him at the retreat. When I was at the LYB retreat it felt really good for me to be meeting other people that I could relate to about my own traumatic brain injury.

It felt great that every night for a week that after eating dinner, me, my brother, and the other people we met would meet to do meditation before going to bed.
