About Cristabelle

If there is one thing you need to know, it’s this: Cristabelle Braden offers more than music; she offers inspiration, hope, and sincerity. After suffering a traumatic brain injury at age 14, Cristabelle spent years in neuro-trauma rehabilitation therapy. She was told by her doctors that she may never graduate high school, be independent from her parents, or be able to go away to college. Since then, she has grown and overcome barriers that were never dreamed possible, including graduating from Lebanon Valley College in May 2015 Summa Cum Laude, releasing two albums of original music, and touring the country as a singer and speaker on brain injury.

Her main outlet after her injury was music. She never wrote a song before her brain injury, but only a week after, songs started to pour out of her. All of this has given her a great resolve to use her music to share her hope-filled story of rehabilitation from brain injury as a way to encourage and empower others going through similar circumstances.

Cristabelle has become very active as an advocate for brain injury. She has started an organization for brain injury awareness called Hope After Head Injury. Through her journey of recovery, she grew more and more passionate about TBI support and awareness. The idea for Hope After Head Injury came to her in 2012, and the idea continued to grow until she finally officially launched it in 2015, 7 years after her TBI.  Her goal through Hope After Head Injury is to provide a support system which focuses on the emotional aspect on healing from brain injury. She travels and speaks at rehab centers, support groups, and brain injury conferences as well as has a large social media presence where she candidly speaks about living with brain injury.

One of her videos entitled “You Look Fine: The Real Life Struggle of an Invisible Injury” went viral on Facebook and now has over 70,000 views (and counting). This led to her being invited to speak at conferences across the nation. In 2016 she spoke at the Brain Injury Association of Rhode Island Annual Conference, the Brain Injury Network of North Dakota Annual Conference, and the Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania Annual Conference. For 2017, she’s already scheduled to speak and sing at the Mayo Clinic Brain Injury Conference, the Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania, and Penn Medicine Mind Your Brain Conference. She is passionate about spreading awareness and does this through live concerts, public speaking events, online video blogs, and more.

Having a traumatic brain injury is not an easy road, but the knowledge that God has a plan for her life has empowered her to overcome adversity. Her hope and prayer is that she can impact the lives of others, whether it be through a lyric, melody, or a simple word of encouragement. Cristabelle has come a very long way and is now a focused young woman, walking in faith and ready to take on the world and share her music in the process.
