Book Spotlight: Aging With Dignity, Living With Grace by David Brady

Four years ago David Brady was viciously assaulted by a 21 year-old man with severe mental illness, resulting in traumatic brain damage. He lost eighty percent of his memory and was forced to put his successful TV production company on hiatus while he sought out a solution to this horrific situation.

That got him wondering, how many other middle aged, or ‘baby boomers’, get blindsided by a life altering event like this?”

Aging With Dignity, Living With Grace will tell you how David was able to turn his life around, overcome adversity, find peace of mind and prosperity in this book.
