Why the Need for Funding? Recovering from a catastrophic event could take months, if not years, with trained medical rehabilitation therapists.
Even if you have medical insurance, you probably don't have enough. Typically, insurance only covers just 20-30 visits to a rehab center. 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.
