Rating: 5 stars  

I am a social worker and have lots of experience in working with non profits. Some have the best of intentions but they soon disappear or become corrupt, That is why I have such respect for brainstorming 4 Us, it´s professional, focused on the need of this unique population, and a great system of support for survivors and their families, and political advocates. TBI impacts and changes life journeys....I will continue to advocate for their services and refer clients as needed. Rosa Hurtado MSW

Loma Linda Hospital In August 2005 Arthur Moss husband of Lisa Moss received a Severe Traumatic Brain Injury while riding his motorcycle with a group of friends in Hanksville, Utah. Arthur was flown to the University of Utah Trauma Hospital where Author laid in a deep coma. When Lisa arrived she was given the medical update, assigned a social worker and informed he was in a coma. Feeling helpless she began researching information on the internet with her sister-in-law, Tayna Ison to learn the complications, medications, and long term effects of a traumatic brain injury. Lisa and Tonya soon realized there was little information readily available for families when they were thrown into the unknown world of Traumatic Brain Injury. Within a year Brainstorming 4 Us was born a non-profit agency that provides education, support and brain injury resource bags to Trauma Centers throughout Southern California. Brainstorming 4 Us brain injury resource bags are offered to families at no charge to answer questions pertaining to different types of brain injuries, glossary of terms to help the families understand the medical terms that are being delivered to them during a crisis, diagrams of medical machines, toiletries for the first 24 hours, pad of paper and a pen to write notes or changes in the patient’s recovery. Loma Linda University Medical Center and Children’s Hospital, (LLUMC & CH), began distributing the brain injury bags in 2006 and has placed over 150 bags in the hands of families dealing with a Traumatic Brain Injury. The brain injury resource bags have been an asset for families, friends, patients, nurses and physicians. Allowing the families the opportunity to understand the injury and terminology has made the staff’s job at LLUMC & CH a little easier. One of the Brainstorming bags was taken by a physician of LLUMC to another state when one of his family members received a traumatic brain injury. A testimonial to the impact and power the bags deliver. The vision of Brainstorming 4 Us has proven time and again to be a gift of love hope, support and inspiration. Sincerely, Michael May Adult Trauma Nurse Coordinator Loma Linda University Medical Center and Children’s Hospital

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have watched this organization offer support, resources, education and funding to families who are struggling with brain injury related issues.

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

Funding to support their mission and cause to make a difference with families struggling with a Traumatic Brain Injury, Aneurysm or stroke.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Brainstorming 4 Us reaches out to help families who have experienced a brain injury. Their goal is to educate, support and help survivors and caregivers experiencing brain injury.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Kind, compassionate and willing to go the extra miles to help when a catastrophic injury occurs.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

It could serve families throughout the United States and make a difference for survivors, caregivers, friends, public schools and police departments.

Ways to make it better...

I would not change a thing but support their program through our hospital and beyond.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding needs to be available to help them reach their goals to have all trauma hospitals in the United States have their Brain Injury Resource Bags available to families for free

One thing I'd also say is that...

They are in this for the right reason. Having a husband and brother who sustained a sever Traumatic Brain Injury these women have dedicated their life to helping others through the difficult steps of brain injury.
