Barb Butler has been involved in many different capacities with Brain Injury Canada since it’s founding in 2002. She has been the proud recipient of many different awards but is proudest of being honored by her city with the Regina Distinguished Volunteer award and the province of Saskatchewan Volunteer medal.
However the thing in life that had brought her the most happiness and pride is her two children Erin and Brett who never fail to bring a smile to her face.
After being involved in a near fatal car crash in 1993 Barb Butler was hospitalized for several months and attended outpatient rehab for almost five years.
Determined to survive and thrive Barb became a board member with the Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association in 1998 serving in many capacities and has never looked back in her goal to improve the life of people with acquired brain injury and their families. Barb has lived in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan and achieved her goal to visit all of the other provinces at least once.
She is a proud Canadian who loves her life. And it loves her back.
