Almost 11 years ago my son was in a near fatal auto accident, he survived with having a Severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). I became involved with the San Diego Brain Injury Foundation before my son was released from the hospital by attending their Saturday support meetings. I found that I was not alone. When James came home from the hospital 10 months post coma and 15 months after his accident I began attending the meetings with him. I became a board member because I wanted to help make a difference in the lives of so many who have a family member with a brain injury. This organization helps give support and resources to families to help them cope with their newly changed lives and everyday living. From this organization I formed my own non-profit to work alongside and help get the word out about Traumatic Brain Injuries.
