My daughter suffered brain injury from multiple brain surgeries to try and remove a brain tumor. BIATN has provided much needed information , encouragement and active involvement in her continued education and therapy. I can honestly state she would not have advanced to the cognitive therapy treatment she has had without BIATN's support and guidance.

My son suffered a Brain Injury from a bout with Encephalitis in 1996. BIAT has been a source of support and much needed information. There are few resources available in TN for Brain Injury survivors. I applaud the efforts of this group because they continue to try to offer the best services with limited funds.

My husband, myself and my son have attended support groups offered through BIAT. My son has atteded Brain Injury Camp and my whole family has benefited from the respite it has provided.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

funding is so important for an organization like BIAT. This is a remarkable group of people who want to help an increasing number of survivors. The change should be funding for this very special organization.

My 19 year old son was in a motor vehicle accident five years ago and suffered a TBI. I felt right away that this was a marker in time and our lives would forever be changed. It was about four years after the accident that I learned of the monthly support group. It has been a wonderful resource. I've made many good friends. It's great to celebrate successes with each other. It's a community of great understanding.

a personal way, family member with TBI

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide the information to families as they leave the hospital/rehab.
