Cesar Perez: Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor, Aspiring Hollywood Actor, Best-Selling Author of Chase the Light

In one devastating blow, dreams are shattered. Although this week's Team Never Quit guest, Cesar Perez, went from rising Hollywood star to miraculously surviving a head-on collision with a drunk driver, he shines brightly with the resilience of the human spirit. Cesar starred alongside Daniel Ratcliff (Harry Potter) in the action thriller Beast of Burden for which he also did graphic design work. He was also cast as a major lead character Javier in the action thriller Blind Trust. Despite his severe brain injury, having his face shattered, and learning how to breathe, walk, and talk again, Cesar lives a life of courage and shows us firsthand that even in the darkest of moments, life has meaning. In this episode you will hear: I did a video tape audition that got me a role with Daniel Ratcliff {Harry Potter}. My life was really on the rise. I was driving to see my girlfriend when a drunk driver hit me head-on going over 70mph. He spun me around and then a big rig hit me – also going 70mph, and then I don't remember anything for the next 2 weeks. If life had a reset button, I must have pressed it. I was making a statement with my life and then it got cut abruptly. I thought if I can get out of this, there's nothing I can't do. The first thing I said to the guy that hit me was “the last thing I ever wanted to see is someone from my country behind bars.” I wanted my life back and no one could give me that back. Talking and facing that demon helped me put the period at the end. My family never left me – they showed me what true love actually is. That was the love that got me through it. My family's sacrifice gave my life meaning when my life felt meaningless. Once I could finally run, I thought “I'm gonna do more”, and that's what got me back to where I am. The drive I had as a kid is more intense now. It was running hot, but now it's running with a different fire. Putting my experience down in words helped me heal. As long as there's breath in me, it's still possible to live a beautiful life. If, in the end, I helped save a life, it was worth it.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is always in the back of our mind when treating polytrauma patients. Unfortunately, the evidence has a controversial history. More and more, we are reminded of how a basic approach is much more important than other therapies that have little evidence to support their effectiveness. In fact, some may even cause harm. Tune in to a podcast where we debunk these common TBI myths. Also, this is the debut episode of Dr. Amanda Humphries-Ventura as an official HLTH team member.

This months guest is Curtis Anderson, a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivor for a new area we're looking to dive deeper into on the podcast – the patient's perspective. We talk to Curtis about his 20 year journey and how he defied what was initially thought possible for the full extent of his rehab. After 3 weeks in a medically induced coma he spent a year in a rehabilitation center and he has since gone on a journey to be a motivational speaker helping other get through their own journeys as the prime example of what can happen when you don't give up, even after 20 years, when you are determined to treat every day as an opportunity to do better, be better and perform better. In his own words, it took him 8 years to learn to drive again, 8 years to use a staircase with the railing on the left side, 10 years to be able to pick up change from the counter top & 16 years to pick it up off of the ground! He's an inspiration and the personification of never giving up and I hope you enjoy hearing about his journey as much as I have!

The Mighty Oaks Program  Jeremy Stalnecker pt 2 As many of you know, from some of the conversations I've had on this program, my first love was the United States Army. The love of country; the desire to serve and to protect; the brotherhood and comradery you shared. The missions. The dangers. The highs and lows. The struggles. Everyone was going through it together. Everyone was enduring the same thing. Everyone hated it and still loved it at the same time. For those that served, you know what I'm talking about. For those that did not serve, it is hard for me or anyone else to put into words. Our guest today is a veteran and part of a group that you just need to know about. It is the “Mighty Oaks Foundation” and our guest today is the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Jeremy Stalnecker. Jeremy was a Marine Corps Infantry Officer with the First Battalion, Fifth Marines, First Marine Division as a platoon commander in various positions. In January 2003, his unit was deployed to become part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. As the war began, his unit was the first to breach the berm separating Kuwait and Iraq and they were able to secure the first military objective of the war. Continuing, they road marched forward and ended up in Baghdad and were able to seize control of the Presidential Palace in northern Baghdad on the Tigris River. Throughout this mission, Jeremy and his unit provided navigation and security for the battalion. One month after returning from war, he became the assistant pastor at his church and gained ministry experience that would equip to doing what he is doing now, serving the Lord and furthering his ministerial responsibilities. In 2008, Jeremy took on the role of senior pastor of the Bay Area Baptist Church in Freemont, California. After serving there for seven years, he accepted a full time position with the Mighty Oaks Foundation where he is able to use both, his military background and his ministry experience to help many hurting veterans, service members, their families as well as first responders and their families. The “Mighty Oaks Foundation” is committed to serving the brokenhearted by providing intensive peer-based discipleship through a series of programs, outpost meetings and speaking events... You have programs for both men and women. Do you have a program for husband and wife to attend together? Survivors guilt is a very serious emotional problem for many of our veterans. How does “Mighty Oaks” help people to answer that question of “Why them and not me?” How do you help hurting veterans to share their stories? Just the fact of being able to talk with someone can often begin the path for healing? Does your organization offer speakers for Veterans events, churches, conferences and things like that? Is there any cost for a veteran, family member, first responder, etc. for your programs? You also host a podcast, https://www.jeremystalnecker.com/ (“March or Die,”) correct?  Tell us about your program? Jeremy, this has been a great interview. I know someone out there listening to us today either needs to get in touch with you or knows someone that needs your services. How can someone get in touch with you, the “Mighty Oaks Foundation,” and apply for your services or have someone come out and speak at an event, etc.? How can someone listen to your podcast? Folks, I have spoken at veterans conferences and I have met many people in what I do that served this nation. Many of the suffer from some form of PTSD, have Traumatic Brain Injuries, have developed severe illnesses, etc. And the services offered by “The Mighty Oaks Foundation” are there to help these folks. Perhaps you know of someone that can use their services. Perhaps you can help them reach someone that can use their services. How? By making a donation to support their work. Every donation matters.

Kelly Buchanan, lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter for local band, Dimestore Dolls, injured her brain during a street hockey game, in her hometown, New York City. The injury took place in 2008 right before Buchanan released an album. More than ten years later, after she recovered, Buchanan retuned to music and formed the six-person local band, Dimestore Dolls. On Tuesday's Smart Talk we'll talk with Buchanan and discuss how she returned to music after the injury and Dimestore Dolls' new record “Wooly Mamas”.Support WITF: https://www.witf.org/support/give-now/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

As a child, Jimmy McGlynn's mother said he had “a lot of character”, but his aunt said he needed a flogging. He wasn't a naughty kid though, just full of energy that couldn't be contained within a classroom. So, even though he excelled at school, at the end of year 10 he headed up north to start working on cattle stations. In the years that followed Jimmy progressed through the ranks to leadership roles, even winning the Territory's Best Ringer competition. But, ultimately his journey would be marked by 2 significant accidents – a traumatic brain injury, and a broken back. In this episode, Jimmy shares the stories of those two accidents which occurred almost exactly 10 years apart. We also discuss the cattle industry's attitude towards work health and safety, the culture around alcohol, and taking on responsibility at a young age.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/central-station.

#70 Dr Tarun Singhal, MD on microglial activation as a common root of neuroinflammatoy conditions but also brain fog, fatigue and mood changes

Podcast for Healing Neurology

Microglial cells are responsible for sensing and driving the immune response in the central nervous system. Their activity, be it supportive or destructive, can be at the root of many different neuroinflammatory conditions including diseases like MS, ALS, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), but may also play a large role in the vague hallmark symptoms of complex and chronic disease like brain fog, fatigue, pain, alertness and mood changes including OCD, ADD, and depression. Dr Singhal systematically walks us through an easily understood description of the types of cells in the brain (neurons, macroglia (astrocytes & oligodendrocytes), microglia) and their functions. The microglia are a fascinating type of neuroimmune cell that sense and act protectively in good times and then can change shape and release various cytokines, chemokine and neurotransmitters in response to the development of disease, which then impacts microglia function further. We used to only be able to see this on autopsy- there are no blood tests available to measure microglial activation (although neurofilament light chains (NfL) from neurons and glial fibrillary acid protein (GFAP) from astrocytes can reflect central nervous system cellular injury). But PET imaging can visualize microglial activation! Dr Singhal explains in elucidating detail the nature, function, and power of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging, like starting with the Big Bang, anti-matter particles, medical cyclotrons and gamma rays. “PET brings physics, chemistry and biology together in real time to provide novel insights at a cellular and molecular level”, including microglial activation. “If you know yourself and know your enemy, you'll win 1000 battles” is the way he describes what PET can do for neuroinflammatory conditions. We end the show with a discussion of treatment theories and options targeting microglial activation. It's a combination of re-evaluating known therapies (even the old antibiotic minocycline!) for their impact on microglia as well as mention of some novel therapies, including a nasal spray ‘vaccine' for MS. Of course, we bring up non-pharmacologic therapy potentials including exercise, the Ayurvedic perspective including panchakarma detoxification, the power of breathing to impact cerebrospinal fluid flow, ketogenic diet, and consideration of various adaptogenic herbs with the goal of supporting the immune system's intelligence.

Ron Breland - Retired Soldier and Warfighter Nation Chaplain U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Ron Breland (Ret.) served in the United States Army from 1990 to 2005 as a DoD Certified Firefighter and a Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Specialist. As a third generation firefighter, Ron realized early that his destiny was to serve. In 1993, Breland volunteered for the humanitarian-turned-combat mission in Mogadishu, Somalia where he engaged the enemy on their own ground. Unbeknownst to Breland at the time, he suffered a minor Traumatic Brain Injury after a truck explosion. He was also a Quick Reaction Force Member at Swordbase, and thwarted a surprise attack on his basecamp by two Somali insurgents, which he quickly dispatched during the evening of October 3rd. A tour to the war torn region of Kosovo would come later, in 1999, where then Sergeant Breland was hand-picked by the XVIII Airborne Corps Command Staff and named the Task Force Falcon Fire Chief, serving under then Brigadier General Carlos Sanchez. Breland successfully ran fire stations on three base camps in two countries while forging mutual aid agreements between the United States and other Balkan nations. During this tour, Breland's specialized team responded to a Special Forces Team that was killed after driving over an anti-tank mine, which seriously affected Breland's morale. Ron would not be diagnosed with PTSD until 2001, just before 9-11-01. As a Squad Leader serving in Ar Ramadi, Iraq from 2003 through 2004, Breland led his Quick Reaction Force on over 300 missions outside the wire during their tenure in the Sunni Triangle. His Battalion, having taken heavy casualties throughout the year, the most of any single Battalion level unit at that time during OIF, Breland sank deeper into his PTSD symptoms and depression. SSG Breland was medically retired in July of 2005. The experiences and positions held both in the Fire Service and as a combat-proven leader would serve the nation's First Responders well as he transitioned into the next phase of his professional life. After medically retiring from the United States Army in 2005, Ron Breland served as the New Mexico State Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Coordinator, a division of the New Mexico Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. There, Breland also served as the Program Manager of New Mexico Task Force-1, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Task Force under the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Emergency Support Function - 9, and personally trained thousands of Military and First Responders in the fields of Incident Command (ICS), Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), Vehicle-Borne IEDs, and Suicide Bomber Prevention Training in only two years. Breland was also selected as a member of the Department of Homeland Security's focus group to examine and establish response actions of First Responders; a cumulative report which directly served in the development of Homeland Security Presidential Directive-19 (Combating Terrorist Use of Explosives in the United States). This elite group was derived from an International community of Bomb Squad Commanders, Hazardous Materials professionals, and other response personnel. Ron also taught Counter-Terrorism Courses for the Department of Homeland Security's Center for Domestic Preparedness, New Mexico Tech, and the Nevada Test Site; all members of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium. Ron now serves as a Chaplain through a unique Military Outreach Ministry; his wife's 501 (c)(3) - Warfighter Ranch. This organization exists to help heal the invisible wounds of the heart, mind, and soul through Jesus Christ! A unique Military Artist, Ron uses parachute cord to reach out to over 20,000 Warfighters individually over the last 13 years. Ron believes each and every piece is "a sermon for one". Ron is the author of four books; most notably ”Ghost Nation – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Society”, which he co-wrote with his wife, Helen, to offer different vantage points of PTSD and to help others understand this debilitating condition. The Breland family currently resides in Glendale, Arizona, have 5 children and 3 grandchildren! Warfighter Ranch www.warfighterranch.org Facebook https://www.facebook.com/ron.breland.7 Please stop by and give our page a Like and help grow this amazing Military Outreach Ministry - Warfighter Ranch! https://www.facebook.com/warfighterranchactual/ And the Outreach arm of Warfighter Ranch - the Isaiah 6:8 Military Outreach Ministry! https://www.facebook.com/isaiah68actual/ YouTube https://youtube.com/c/Isaiah68Actual #NextMissionTimeNow #WarfighterNation #WarfighterRanch #IsIahSixEight #SendMe #ReturnWithHonor #BetterTogether #WarfighterNation #UniversityOfMogadishuClassOf93 #JesusIsMyJumpmaster
