Dr. Nandi TV Show on Distracted Driving: 

From One Second To The Next                                    (Video to the right)
With the rise of cell phones has come a deadly new menace on the roads, texting while driving. This film has a variety of vignettes featuring various perpetrators of this foolish carelessness and their surviving victims and relatives. As they tell their stories of the traumatic accidents they suffered along with the attending police officers' testimonies, the film explores how their lives are changed forever.Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com]

Our Organization

Current Activity


Provide people education on brain injuries, stop texting while driving, help provide services to people in need and to help people achieve their maximum potential in life. 

La Forest is adamant about sharing his story with others.  Citing his own experiences, he says that anytime a doctor or anyone else said he could not do something, it only inspired him to push harder.

“I just tell people that when a door closes you have two choices: Give up or keep going. Let them shut you down or prove them wrong. We all start somewhere, but it’s where you end up that counts.”

Please visit the web store and show your support for not texting and driving by ordering a tee shirt or wrist band. A percentage of the proceeds will be used to help others in the community. 

More speeches coming soon...
