Our son suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in a car accident 2/23/2009. During his second night at the hospital, my wife and I were presented with a tote bag filled with various comfort items and two books containing valuable information regarding the brain and what to expect during recovery and rehabilitation. We were also informed that Mothers Against Brain Injury Inc (MABII) was a locally founded and operated organization. As our son's recovery progressed, founder Tracy Porter called me a couple of times to check on his progress and to offer support. We also became Facebook friends and I've been able to keep up with MABII's efforts. Tracy is a person who is driven to assist families of TBI victims/survivors in the early stages of the injury and to provide information to the general public in hopes of reducing the frequency of TBI. She has done all of this during the course of her own son's 6-year recovery from TBI which makes her all the more remarkable. This is an organization whose outreach lets families know that they are not alone when a TBI strikes a loved one.
