Resilience is The Annie Nelson

 public speaking to inspire all ages.... 

​​"Annie is one of those precious and few individuals who in the face of significant personal pain and hardship still finds the time to devote countless hours of their time and energy to support others in need. Her devotion to our wounded warriors  is exemplary, and I’m proud to be her supporter and her friend."

“Annie Nelson’s remarkable story of overcoming multiple head trauma, PTS, and a life-threatening brain tumor, and transforming her adversity into the opportunity to support our veterans and their families, embodies the spirit of my Open Hearts Foundation, for which she won the first-ever ‘Open Heart Patriot Award’ in 2012. In her memoir, Annie exemplifies how facing life struggles with faith and courage truly can make a difference to others.”
