Kathleen's Book

JABA Foundation Announces Book Launch

After much anticipation, and years of writing, editing, and fine-tuning, we are pleased to announce the release of Kathleen Newhouse’s autobiography. This book chronicles Kathleen’s life as a successful musician, athlete, and business owner who overcame incredible odds to survive a Severe Traumatic Brain Injury (STBI).

Unfortunately, the aftermath of her injury left Kathleen unable to perform her music, compete in the world championships for Taekwondo or even master some everyday tasks. Through determination, perseverance, and above all, faith in God, Kathleen went through an unbelievable journey on her road to recovery. Her book goes in depth about her process of self-rediscovery, and, ultimately, reinvention. Since her injury, Kathleen has gone on to flourish in new and exciting ways including discovering a talent for painting.

Today, she focuses her energy on her craft and embraces every sunrise as a mystery. To Kathleen, every tomorrow is a gift, a new canvas, awaiting the possibility within her—awaiting her first brushstroke. And then, the next.

Kathleen’s full-color, premium stock, soft cover book titled Just A Breath Away – Streams of Thought From a Severe Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor is now available online. Order yours today:
