June 2013 my son,19 at the time, was in a car accident and suffered a serious tbi. His recovery has been nothing short of remarkable but like most tbis it has been a marathon not a sprint. Minutes for Memories came into my son's marathon and gave him a break from the often mundane and at times very difficult journey he is traveling. They have touched our family with their genuine kindness and compassion. My son went to the Celtics season opener with his dad, me, and his uncle and Matt and Greg from Minutes for Memories. He had a wonderful time and seeing him so happy meant so much to all of us. He tells everyone what Minutes for Memories did for him and how "awesome" it was. As a parent, what Minutes for Memories, brought to my son and our family was a minute to forget the difficulties of life and create a memory of laughing, fun, and togetherness.
The Minutes for Memories staff are passionate and truly care about their mission. It's great seeing their natural interaction with children and the joy the kids take in getting to be part of memories.
My better half when healthy was a coach and played many sports. Once he was disabled he struggled with finding a way to channel his energy and love of coaching. He came across wheelchair soccer and enjoyed it. Minutes gave the team it's start. I am forever grateful to Matt and Greg for that. My better half is no longer with me, and I am thankful for the great memories I have.
Last year I was badly hurt in a car accident and suffered a tbi. Yesterday, October 29, I got to meet Matt and Greg and go to the Celtics season opener. The night was great! Matt and Greg were incredibly nice and understanding of everything I've gone through.
I know those involved with Minutes for Memories very well and its clear to see that they are so passionate about the Foundation's mission. Matt and the crew work hard to create experiences to lift up those that may need it after tragic accidents. Minutes for Memories is a great cause run by a great group.
This is an incredible organization - after someone suffers a tragic incident, they need tremendous support and someone to lift them up when they are struggling and that is exactly what Minutes for Memories offers to every child - inspiration.

Having a handicapped sibling myself, it is great to see what "Minutes for Memories Foundation" has done.
Their work really is inspiring to iniate something similar here in Germany!
The healing process after traumatic injuries extends beyond the hospital and PT setting. Minutes for Memories helps bring a little joy and happiness to the journey as well.
I have had the pleasure of accompanying Minutes for Memories on two of the Memories made through their partnership with the Boston Symphony's Symphony for Our City Program. Volunteering with this organization has been an awesome experience and I look forward to continuing my involvement in the years ahead!
