Tina Crook is a Parent Network Specialist for the WVU Center for Excellence in Disabilities. She is passionate about her job, helping other parents of children with special medical needs, because of her experience and journey with her son, Daylin. Daylin acquired a brain injury at the age of 13, leaving him with significant left frontal lobe damage. Today, 8 years later, Tina speaks words of wisdom and hope from a parent's perspective; how she felt during the most difficult years of her life, how she managed and overcame and where Daylin is in his life and recovery now.
