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.

I've had the honor of working with Minutes for Memories from its inception in 2011. In it's short life, Minutes for Memories has been able to help a power chair soccer team get started and create a memory at a Red Sox game for an exceptional young man who was injured in a car accident. Getting to continue making these memories is something I look forward to doing. Seeing the happiness on the kids and their families faces makes it all worth it.
