About the Book

This is the true story of when a sudden moment of impact took my life away. Though I am not “born again” in a religious sense, I have been given a second chance at this game called life. This is my story of hope, recovery, and rebirth. On a brisk September afternoon, I was involved in a severe automobile accident when the motorcycle I was driving was struck by a car. Among my numerous physical injuries were seven broken ribs, a ruptured spleen, a bruised liver, a torn bowel, and a bilateral pneumothorax (two punctured lungs). The one that altered the course of my life forever though was the closed-head traumatic brain injury I received. Gratefully, I not only survived this intense injury but have recovered remarkably well and am now thriving against all odds. It has become my goal to share this story of recovery in order to assist others in keeping the one thing that changed my life, the choice of always moving forward. Choosing to adapt to the change instead of simply reacting is a very powerful tool. Visit: to recharge your Moving Forward drive.

About the Author

A former employee trainer for a national bank, Wayne built and sold a successful business in Florida before returning to Canada to go back to university. In following his direction to become a medical doctor, taking the course The Psychology of Law altered his path. In 2005, however, a car struck his motorcycle, and topping all other damage, the traumatic brain injury (TBI) shattered his life. Rebuilding who he once was, Wayne lived in Charlottetown, PEI, Canada with his wife and two sons, so she could fulfill her lifelong dream. In May of 2013, she graduated as a DVM.
