Joan Van De Griek is our guest. She talks about the freak incident that ended her police officer husband's career. He was kicked in the head by a Clydesdale horse which caused multiple injuries. At first she thought it was a minor injury that would heal. His condition continued to deteriorate until he was eventually diagnosed with a Traumatic Brain Injury. The impact on their family, the battles with the City and workers compensation and his eventual retirement. Plus the unexpected financial drain on their family. Fortunately her financial experience and actions saved them from the devastating impact of the expenses they paid. Plus, how she uses her experience to help other first responder families protect themselves financially.
