Brainstorming 4 Us, Inc.
July 1, 2010

BrainStorming4Us has been an amazing life support for me and my family. On March 22, 2008,I was reborn (T.B.I. survivors refer to their injury date as a rebirth). Due to life basically starting all over again. I was asleep, when my husband heard sounds, and thought I was having a bad dream. When he turned on the lights, he realized I was having a seizure, and had bit my tongue. I also suffered a brain anuerysm, and stroke, before the ambulance arrived at my residence. After being hospitalized, my husband was told, I probably would not survive, due to my critical medical condition. This did not stop "God" from doing what he does best......Granting miracles, when all hope looks blick. From what I'm told there were numerous blick moments. Hospice was called in at one point, but I weathered the storm through God's grace. There was a point in time, when my husband was signing paperwork to have me air lifted to Loma Linda Hospital to have a stint placed in my head to survive. This was when the miracle of "God", and medicine prevailed. My left brain critical bleeding ceased. the doctors stated they have never seen or heard of this process ever occurring. At that point, I no longer needed surgery on my brain to save my life. My husband was told, I would more than likely be in a vegetative state, and or need around the clock care for the rest of my life. I'm here today after learning how to walk, talk,reading, after a second stroke due to receiving vicodin,even though the hospital was advised of my allergic reaction to this medicine. My mouth and rt hand were twisted. Lft side parcial paralysis. Short and long term memory loss, which I haven't overcome. I thank BrainStorming4Us for supporting me, and my family. We love you Lisa Moss.You made a huge impact on our lives.

The Great!

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

Being able to regain my personal self worth, and appreciation. Learning to literally take one day at a time. Not being judged due to my T.B.I.

Ways to make it better...

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

Having local government, and Washington listen to me and other T.B.I. survivor's need for acknowledgement, and funding for this traumatic medical condition. "Celebrate Life" If you think you can't you really must.. Families learn to heal out of despair

More feedback

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

The ability to surround myself with individuals,who have stood in my shoes...

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

awesome individuals,that have generous hearts, and souls.They truly care about human compassion.

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

Lift another family's life with their immediate understanding of T.B.I.

Ways to make it better...

There was more excessable funding to help support their cause...The initial deliverance of their Trauma Bags.

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

Public awareness, due to lack of funds, and helping hands.

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

We have the same flaws and capabilities as anyone else.Our goal is not to believe that T.B.I.(Traumatic Brain Injury) survivors are disabled individuals,but to educate the public that we are normal, thriving, active human beings. We have the same hurdles.
