Join us for an informative and enlightening talk with Janet Schliff about living with brain injuries. Brain Injury is often referred to as a silent epidemic. Janet’s new book What Ever Happened to My White Picket Fence? is a poignant portrayal of her life before and after the removal of a brain tumor. It is honest, informative, emotional and humorous. Her story helps readers to understand that though not all impairments are outwardly physical, they are devastating nonetheless.
Janet Johnson Schliff was an award-winning special education teacher for 25 years. But, as her abilities began to fade away with no medical explanation, she suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) behaviors that wreaked havoc on her much-loved teaching career…. A massive brain tumor was discovered, and finally, after brain surgery, the odd behaviors it caused that had ruled her life for years were gone, only to be replaced by a different set of life-long challenges due to her injured brain. Her story will inspire and inform her readers.
