Visualize the quiet despair and lonely struggle of those affected by brain injury as they attempt to understand their private new reality . . .
Consider the value of a community organization dedicated to empowering and connecting those affected by brain injury to resources . . .
Imagine how easy it would be for you to improve the lives of so many . . .
All brain injuries are traumatic to those affected – both survivors and caregivers – but not all brain injuries are traumatic brain injuries (TBI). TBI's are one type of acquired brain injury (ABI). The common denominator is the body's most important and least understood organ, the human brain. Common causes of brain injury are included here.
The Brain Injury Connection (BIC)'s focus is on the ABI community. We are committed to helping those whose lives have been affected by brain injury and we want them to know immediately they are not alone and there are resources available to them.
Brain injury changes lives. Those living with a brain injury are often neglected and misunderstood because the problems are invisible, which makes them easier to ignore or misdiagnose.
