Now we know that it was actually part of the plan the hospital had in place. It seems that the seriousness of our daughter’s injuries had set their plan in motion. The chaplain provided comfort, an interface with the medical staff and along with the extra privacy and some extra care and attention. It was very welcome and very helpful.

Our Mission Statement

Our goal is to see that survivors of brain injuries are given every chance possible to recover.

As soon as the patient is stabilized they will likely be moved from the ER to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). They will be monitored closely for any change in status. You can expect additional tests and procedures as the doctors gain more information about your loved one’s condition. Some procedures, even minor surgical procedures, may be done right in the room in the ICU.   

We provide practical, actionable advice from people who have suffered through the same experience. We try to educate, commiserate, and help buoy the spirits of the survivors and families as we all deal with this terrible tragedy. We provide information and support for both the crisis and the long-term care phases of recovery as well as prevention programs.
