Description

Cheryl Koenig's life changed forever the day her twelve-year-old son Jonathan was involved in a horrific car accident. Given very little chance of survival, Jonathan was in a coma for six weeks and doctors predicted that even if he did pull through he would most likely never walk, talk or be able to eat again. But Cheryl refused to accept this prognosis and together with her husband Robert set out on a relentless and ultimately successful quest to save Jonathan and prove the medical profession wrong. Now, twelve years since the accident, Jonathan has defied the odds and lives a rich and fulfilling life. And Cheryl couldn't be prouder of her son's achievements and the remarkable person he has become. Since the publication of the first edition of Paper Cranes, Cheryl has continued her leading work in raising awareness of brain injury, participating in seminars and presenting speeches both in Australia and internationally. In recognition of her incredible efforts, she was NSW Woman of the Year in 2009.

The author

Cheryl Koenig won the NSW Woman of the Year Award for raising awareness about brain injury. She was born and still resides in the southern suburbs of Sydney, meeting her soulmate whilst still in school and married at the age of just nineteen. Apart from volunteering much of her free time helping to improve government policy and services in the area of brain injury, she attributes her happiness to the simplicity of nurturing and nourishing her very special family
