When tragedy strikes -- a loving and determined mother's philosophy for moving forward
When the unthinkable happened to Liz Tullis' son Conrad, the loving and determined mother moved forward in a way that is both an inspiration and a roadmap for all of us who experience tragedy in our lives.
When Conrad was 17 months old, he fell into a swimming pool by accident, and was submerged for unknown minutes before he was discovered. Conrad suffered severe brain damage.
His mom sprang into action, and has since focused all her energies on Conrad’s continued recovery. Among other accomplishments, Liz has been a driving force in pushing medical research on the type of brain injury Conrad has to new frontiers of discovery. (Be sure to check out the website ConradSmiles.com, and all of ongoing research on anoxic brain injury in pediatric non-fatal drowning cases).
Liz's philosophy for how to deal with tragedy -- and how to forgive those who caused it -- is as compelling as it is universal and timeless.
