During an ordinary Fall afternoon, Kimber Hanchey-Ogden was delivered devastating news: Seth, her 17-year-old son, had been hit by a car and airlifted to a hospital. Having sustained a traumatic brain injury, doctors told her that if Seth made it, he would never be able to walk or talk; he would not remember his past or understand humor. And that was just for starters.

As hopeless as his prognosis seemed, Kimber summoned her courage, doing all she could to help her son recover. What evolved was a team effort between mother and son!

Today, beyond focusing on Seth's thriving they strive to inspire and motivate others to find purpose in their pain. Push Through It is the account of Seth Hanchey's extraordinary story including his accident and ongoing recovery.

His journey not only led him to miraculously walk again, but compete and medal in the 2018 USA Games of the Special Olympics as a powerlifter (as featured on ESPN). 

Kimber shares the setbacks, as well as the strides, while highlighting her own story within Seth's. She opens up about the challenges of being a caregiver and provides practical and inspirational help to others who find themselves in such a role.

Push Through It will move you to tears and leave you in awe while providing encouragement and empowerment for whatever challenges you face.
