by Giselle A. Burgos, Rediscovery Project Participant
My name is Giselle A. Burgos. I was a registered nurse with a Master’s Degree for thirty years until I had my brain surgery. It took me 2-1/2 years to start recovering. I left nursing and was not able to work anymore because of some issues with blindness.
I attend the Lighthouse for the Blind and the Bay Area Brain Injury Network, which I enjoy tremendously. They have helped me through my recovery and continue to do so. I am re-learning how to read and write.
