Nicole brings to life what happens in Taylor's accident through his continual recovery in a very personal and candid way. She expresses the idea that it takes a village to have a successful recovery and it merely begins in the operating room.
"Falling Away From You is a deeply moving story about how one family came together in the midst of a terrible tragedy with grace, resiliency and courage. This is a story about perseverance, tenacity, teamwork and most importantly, unyielding love. Taylor and his family lift us all up and reminds us of what is most precious." – Michelle Nunn, CEO of CARE
There are a group of people who inspired Nicole to write this book. They are the survivors of Traumatic Brain Injury, those who love them, the people who care for them day in and day out from a medical standpoint, and the friends and family who walk this journey and do not walk away.
