A mother’s life shatters when her 15-year-old son is the victim of a motorcycle accident. When he comes out of the coma, doctors tell her no treatment plans for traumatic brain injury exist in 1970.
So Alice Clark brings Rick home. Using her head and heart, she guides him from sitting in a wheelchair to downhill skiing, from being unable to speak to writing and editing a monthly newsletter.
Once a normal day is lost, will it ever return?
A reckless driver runs a stop sign and plows into a motorcycle. On that beautiful October day, a young mother’s life shatters as doctors tell her that her 15-year-old son will never come out of the coma. But when he does, the doctors are at a loss. No treatment plans for traumatic brain injury exist in 1970.
But Alice Clark refuses to take no for an answer – knowing her son is a fighter, she brings Rick home. As his greatest champion, she uses her head and heart to guide him from sitting in a wheelchair to downhill skiing, from being unable to speak to writing and editing a monthly newsletter.
In No Horns, No Trumpets, Alice and Rick tell their story of setbacks and successes with humor, honesty, and pathos.
