Our dear friends on the Brain Injury Fund Committee,

My name is Amy Burhop and I am the caregiver to our amazing miracle, Danielle. Dani was tragically injured 7 years ago when she was a pedestrian struck by a motor vehicle traveling at 55mph. Dani sustained a TBI and suffers from long term effects such as severe migraines, debilitating anxiety and just all over agitation especially in the evening. After her accident someone suggested we get her a weighted blanket to help calm her on tough days. We sought out the Brain Injury Fund back then and her blanket was a heaven sent. She has grown over the years and she was in need of a larger more “grown up” blanket. Of course the Brain Injury Fund came... Read More

Dear: TBI Fund Members:

The home modifications for David Maloney were completed last week. The ramp that was built increased his ability to move around outside without fear of falling from the both of us. Mr. Tull and his crew have excellent craftsmanship. The grab bars were placed in the bathroom to enable him to steady himself while getting a shower. Before these were placed, he took a fall in the bathroom. He’s able to steady himself on his own with myself close by. The chair height toilet also helped him tremendously to be able to get off commode on his own. At one point, before this was placed, his back went out and I had to call... Read More

This is to the TBI Committee, just wanted to give you a thanks for having a new heater and A/C unit put in my house. I have heard that with a TBI the temperature is important to someone with a brain injury. Plus my old unit was on it's way out and there is no way I could afford a new system, that's one less thing I need to worry about.

Thanks again,
Keith Thibodeau

Dear TBI Fund Committee,

Thank you for paying for Sam’s eye exam and required glasses. These glasses help filter the sun so Sam gets less migraines from the sun. The funding assistance from the SCPD Traumatic Brain Injury Fund was also helpful because he has very little income.

Dear Brain Injury Advisory Committee:

I would first like to thank you for the donation for my neurotherapy with Brain Love given to me by Lauren K. Haggerty, MSPT, BCN. I found that it helped me gain improvements in several areas of my life.

My life within in my home has become more independent. As you know I had a stroke a year and a half ago and since then I have been very limited in my ability to be mobile. This treatment has enabled me for the first time to walk better using my walker. For the first time I have the confidence and... Read More

To Whom It May Concern;

I am writing to say that with the new installation of a stair lift for my partner Franklin has given him added mobility to stay in the home. Franklin has gained a sense of safety in the fact that he does not have to worry about being out of breath from his COPD as he climbs the stairs to use the restroom. The same sense of security is...

Kyle:

Yes, the stove has arrived and installed. The job has been completed. We are very happy with the final project. We are still in the process of putting everything back in order, but we are thrilled with Jack’s ability to access the kitchen and join us for meals. Thank you so much. I would be happy to take photos and send them once we have everything back in order.

Good Afternoon Kyle,

I just wanted to take a minute and say thank you from the bottom of my heart for approving the application for Brian to go to camp. He had a wonderful time! I think it did him a world of good and it didn't hurt me, even though I did miss him.

So once again ..... Thank you
Gigi Law
