Dear Friends, Family and Community,

On Feb. 27, 2012, Amy Clabaugh suffered a severe traumatic brain injury when she fell from a ladder, hitting her head on a concrete floor. Amy has been receiving intense therapies since that time.

Nov 2020
What a year!
We have lived in 4 different homes in the last year. The 4th being our newly built ADA home by Lake Conroe. Amy was able to help make decisions and supervise the construction. We moved in just as everything was starting to shut down, including most of Amy’s therapies. She was able to continue one therapy as our Neufit practitioner came to our home until the office reopened.
Amy took advantage of that time to unpack, organize and set up her therapy room and build shelves for our garage. She also learned how to ride an adult trike and has worked up to just over a mile. Once we returned to OT her therapist remarked she had not regressed over the months but progressed!
Amy continues to improve in her mobility, dynamic balance, fine motor tasks, speech and cognitive abilities.

What Amy wants you to know:
She thinks she has made major gains in:

1). standing without assistance while doing tasks
2). walking better with a walker
3). building up leg and core strength by riding the adult trike
4). transferring weight from one leg to another with minimal assistance
5). walking longer distances with the Alinker walking bike

Amy is continuing OT, PT, Speech (through zoom at Texas State), Neufit, hyperbaric oxygen, chiropractic and functional neurology (through zoom with her dr. in Japan!). This year we have added Neurofeedback, PEMF, dry needling (for the tmj) and are hoping to begin a new brain program which will consist of several new treatments. We are excited to see the possibilities to come but worry about the out of pocket expenses.
One thing we realize is Amy, for the rest of her life, will be looking for ways to continue her recovery journey and to prevent a decline.
We wouldn’t be able to afford all of these therapies and treatments without all of your support and generous donations in Amy’s honor over and over! We love each and everyone of you.

Amy continues to make improvements. She is now riding an adult trike! I’m so grateful she has the strength and balance to be able to do this now! She has me running after her now.
I entered us in a couple of virtual races. The virtual ones allow the participant to take their time and use any method of movement to complete the run. As of today, we have completed a 5k and will have a 10k completed by next week! Amy said she may not be able to run or even walk but she can pedal.
Thank you all for your continued love and support. We couldn’t do it without you!
