The Brain Injury Association of Arizona held the Starlight Safari at the Phoenix Zoo on March 15. The annual event during National Brain Injury Month allows the community to nominate people and organizations that make a positive impact for Brain Injury survivors during the year. Many former patients of HealthSouth Valley of the Sun attended and enjoyed the festivities.
Chris Hotaling, who is the leader of the TBI support group at Valley of the Sun, was among those recognized. Chris, a TBI survivor, received the Advocate Award. He and his wife, Amy, moved to Arizona and started the group in November 2006. Attendance at the monthly meetings continues to grow. Valley of the Sun plans to add a second group to provide support to even more survivors and their family members.
