An inspiring project and great tools for recovery and life


Craig J. Phillips, MRC, BA,  has experienced a traumatic brain injury and through his journey he has created a website A Second Chance to Live which offers each visitor a unique resource for living with brain injury or other invisible disability. Mr. Phillips provides a rich personal exploration of the challenges and barriers he faced in his life following his injury. Each of his teachings are filled with introspection and good sound advice.

For a person living with the effects of a brain injury or other disability, Mr. Phillips will be a powerful resource to staying on the road to a full return to enjoying life. I recommend his work and encourages readers of this blog to visit Mr. Phillips’ website:

    Hello Dr, Gainer,
    I just found out tonight that you kindly wrote the above endorsement of Second Chance to Live. I am honored by your time and kindness Sir. I look forward to being of service in anyway possible.

    In the event that you know of anyone looking for a keynote presenter or some one to provide a workshop, I am available to be of service Dr. Gainer. If so, they may contact me through my email address

    I will say so long for now. Have a pleasant evening Sir.
