Small Victories: Drawing to Heal Traumatic Brain Injuries
I am very honored to announce my partnership with Small Victories in offering drawing lessons for students who are recovering and adapting to traumatic brain injuries. Cindy Wright, the Vice President of Small Victories, contacted me a few months ago to invite me to participate. First off, Cindy’s personal story is profound, yet she has a truly positive outlook. Her Small Victories cofounder is her husband, Derrick Wright, who had a traumatic brain injury while serving in Iraq in 2007. After the ICU, inpatient rehab, and outpatient therapy, Derrick still had work to do in his recovery. He also had a new purpose to find to adapt to his new body. Creating artwork gave him a place to feel productive, challenged, in community, and able to create attainable achievements. Cindy and Derrick founded Small Victories to enable others to do the same for themselves.

I am thrilled to be able to work with their clients and I look forward to sharing some of their journeys here. In case you want to learn more, here is a little video they put together. In this video, you can see the progress Derrick made over time. I hope you’ll consider donating to their organization so others can receive the same sense of purpose. Small Victories is doing amazing things in using drawing and creating artwork to help heal traumatic brain injuries.
