June 2013 my son,19 at the time, was in a car accident and suffered a serious tbi. His recovery has been nothing short of remarkable but like most tbis it has been a marathon not a sprint. Minutes for Memories came into my son's marathon and gave him a break from the often mundane and at times very difficult journey he is traveling. They have touched our family with their genuine kindness and compassion. My son went to the Celtics season opener with his dad, me, and his uncle and Matt and Greg from Minutes for Memories. He had a wonderful time and seeing him so happy meant so much to all of us. He tells everyone what Minutes for Memories did for him and how "awesome" it was. As a parent, what Minutes for Memories, brought to my son and our family was a minute to forget the difficulties of life and create a memory of laughing, fun, and togetherness.

Working with Minutes for Memories has been an extremely worthwhile, rewarding process. I got involved as an intern with the organization as a freshman at Boston College. Now, going into my sophomore year, I continue to work with these amazing people as we expand the network for young life-changing injury survivors. I remember that one of the first things said to me at the beginning of my time with Minutes for Memories was that my work there would be meaningful and valuable to the organization, and that has proven to be more than true. The members of this organization have big dreams for the future, and I have no doubt that they can successfully do whatever they put their minds to!

As a freshman in Boston College, I was so lucky to get involved with MFM, a growing non-profit with great potential. It is the first time for me to really understand how a non-profit operates and do what I can to help people in need, something I have always dreamed of. It is extremely exciting that under the collaboration of the team, MFM has successfully started a chapter in Boston College, which offers more resources and opportunities for the organization to grow, and to achieve bigger goals in the future. I will definitely continue to work with MFM so that more people will enjoy the benefits!

This is a wonderful charity with a great mission. Those involved give it their all with passion, creativity, and teamwork in the hopes of never letting an injury dictate the quality of life by creating new memories. For such a young foundation, so much has already been accomplished, and I look forward to seeing the growth of MFM in the future and being a part of it.

I have volunteered with Minutes for Memories for over a year now and have witnessed firsthand how this organization helps people living with injuries remain active in pursuing their dreams. Through the creation of positive memories, MFM aims to not let an injury define the rest of a person’s life and to ensure that hope remains to conquer all challenges. I look forward to continuing my work with MFM as it continues to grow and help others. This is an awesome organization that leaves a smile on the face of anyone involved!
