San Diego Brain Injury foundation has provided excellent education and support to numerous TBI survivors and families with whom I have worked over the past 40 years. I applaud their tireless dedication and ongoing high quality services. San Diego is fortunate to have this organization as a resource.

I have been involved with SDBIF as a professional in the field of brain injury rehabilitation off and on for the past 23 years and I have watched it evolve into a spectacular organization that I am proud to be affiliated with. To paraphrase a famous quote, never have so few done so much for so many with so little. No need of a survivor or family is too little to be addressed in a personal and cutomized manner. I consistently refer my patients and families to these good people.

I have been volunteering with the San Diego rain Injury Foundation for over 10 years. Recently, I have been helping them with the marketing and promotions of their fundraising events. It is amazing how far they have come in these 14 years...and it is even more incredible how, this year especially, they have provided support, resources and a great community environment for the Brain Injured community. Their recent surviveHEADSTRONG - Walk for Recovery was more successful than ever before and has opened new doors to serve the community and they are ready to go! Great job SDBIF! I am proud to be working with you.
