SDBIF has been instrumental in helping our family through the maze of information and disinformation about my son's brain injury. Without their guidance at a critical time in our lives, I doubt that our outcome would be nearly as positive as it has been. Their monthly meetings are so helpful for both survivors and their families/careproviders that it is hard to miss one.

SDBIF is a wealth of knowledge about resources, activities, educational opportunities, and counseling. Recently a friend of mine also suffered a brain injury of a very different type than my son's injury. I knew immediately how to get her involved with SDBIF and their adjunct services. She has told me how grateful she is for the outreach and support they provide.

This is a unique organization that is extremely well run by very compassionate people who have immediate knowledge about brain injury - not just a bunch of goody-two-shoes college graduates with no experience.

If you ever need anything related to acquired brain injury in the San Diego area - this is THE place!!

I do not know what I would have done without the resources SDBIF have provided me and some of my BI friends! Life really changed for me after my head injury, no one seem to get me or I them. I received very little support or compassion after the injury, I felt so alone and confused. I attend a brain injury recovery center who recommended SDBIF to learn more about how to cope with my BI and meet others like me. SDBIF welcome me in like an old friend, I felt part of the family right off. The staff were helpful in finding resources, the monthly meeting provided me with much needed insights and the opportunity to meet others like me. SBIF gave me a place where I felt I belong and a home. I will forever grateful for the all the resources that were provided as well as the love and kindness I received from the staff.

With gratitude forever,

Martha Torkington

Five years ago, my wife suffered TBI from an auto accident with aphasia, balance, and cognitive problems. T the same time, I became her sole caretaker. One of the best decisions we made was to get involved with SDBIF and its guiding force Susan Hansen. Through meetings, lectures and exchanging experiences with other survivors and caretakers, we have both not only survived a most unfortunate demand on our lives, but have improved goals for our future. My wife is now in her third year working towards getting her Master’s degree in Rehab. Counseling, and help other survivors. We are very thankful for the support, encouragement, and the understanding that we received from Susan and SDBIF.

The Great!

At the hand of a doctor's care and oversight while I was in back surgery the blood supply to my brain was cut off for 8 hours, a clot was created which my body threw two days late on. Hence a stroke, a brain injury. I literally had to start from the begining to speak, eat, sleep, walk, talk and so on. Learned information was in the form of a cartoon book which lacked anwers for my serios questions of many. Through association with others suviving this eye opening set of circumstances I learned of the San Diego Brain Injuy Foundation. It as as though the lights came, a door opened, and those members, volunteers and the staff of all ages knew tips, tricks and answers to my unasked questions. They were right on the money with concern and care for my well being. SDBIF is an has a wealth of information and support in many of the facets of one's life. SDBIF is one of the bigest regarding Brain Injury in the state of California. Thank goodness for the members, volunteers and the staff for all that they provide for survivors, military and civilian, their families, friends and caregivers!

The Great!

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

gaining knowledge and an understanding just what I was living through, my "whys", where answers were or at least obtaining enough information that would put my anixoiusness at a manageable level. Comng to know the "new me" was possible with SDBIF!

socializing with others

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

gracious, kind and caring

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

utilize it to advertize and reach our wounded warriors and other survivors, their families, friends and caregivrs.
