Most of you know that I now work at a non-profit, the Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut. Since walking through the doors of BIAC two years ago, this cause and the people BIAC serves has captured my heart.
Additionally, watching my daughter Carolyn deal with the day to day challenges of post-concussion syndrome is a constant reminder of the reasons I come to work every day: to help educate people about brain injury and how to prevent it.
But concussion isn't the only form of brain injury and while traumatic brain injuries occur six times more often than MS, spinal cord injury, HIV/AIDS and breast cancer combined, most people don't think about it until it happens to them or to a loved one.
I hope that you will consider making a donation to help me reach my fundraising goal. Every dollar counts. With your donation, you will help assure that BIAC can be there to answer the calls, reach out to the community, and support the thousands of individuals who sustain brain injuries in Connecticut each year.
