Why the Need for Funding? Recovering from a catastrophic event could take months, if not years, with trained medical rehabilitation therapists.

2.5 million Americans (1 in 5)  suffer catastrophic events such as traumatic brain injuries, strokes, aneurysms and spinal cord injuries each year which can cost them up to $3,000,000.00 in a lifetime.

Even if you have medical insurance, you probably don't have enough. Typically, insurance only covers just 20-30 visits to a rehab center which is only 20% of the required rehab per year.  We have learned that is not close enough for recovery from any type of brain or spinal cord injury and then families are forced to fundraise to pay for their loved ones to receive the care they need.  That's where we come in, providing funding that allows patients to continue their rehabilitation and recover to their fullest potential.

We don’t believe you should have to choose between recovering from a brain or spinal cord injury and paying your mortgage. We plan to change that. Our grant program will provide much-needed support for medical and therapy resources that are often not available for those who can’t afford it.

 

Brain injuries are the #1 killer of persons under the age of 44. They kill more Americans under the age of 34 than all diseases combined.

The leading causes:

  • Falls (28%);
  • Motor vehicle-traffic crashes (20%);
  • Struck by/against (19%);
  • Assaults (11%);

The average insurance policy covers 20-30 visits PER YEAR.    While that is enough to recover from a minor injury, it is not enough therapy for your neurological system to generate neuro recovery and begin the neuroplasticity healing process to recover from a brain injury.

We are currently raising funds for our care program, financial program, and to build DEFY Neuro Rehab, an Activity-Based Neuro Rehabilitation Therapy Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
