After a brain-injuring fall from a horse, Brianna May came so close to death that her family began planning her funeral.
Yet within months of her December 2014 accident, the Sebastopol resident returned to work, got married and even climbed back in the saddle.
“I think I was used as an example of what God can do,” she said.
So now when she visits the Methodist Rehab caregivers that helped her recover, Brianna uses her story to inspire others to persevere.
“That’s why I go back,” she said. “People would visit while I was there and I would think: They are doing good, I can, too.”
