Tami Swanson - Mighty Like A Rose
Tami Swanson was brought into the world of shaken baby syndrome/AHT advocacy on June 12, 1978 when a child care provider shook her 6-month-old daughter Kelly. The shaking caused permanent brain damage, leaving Kelly blind, paralyzed on her left side and prone to several seizures a day. Kelly lived for 11 years dealing with these handicaps and died in 1989, at age eleven, as a result of the injuries she sustained.
Tami served on the NCSBS Governing Board for three years. She was instrumental in establishing the NCSBS Strategic Plan and was helpful in securing foundation support for the NCSBS. Tami has shared her family story though the documentary Mighty Like a Rose and as a keynote presenter at conferences in the US, Canada and Scotland.
