The research will include participants over 18 years old, and have sustained a TBI. Interested participants will be invited to access and complete an online survey.

The NBIF Jr. members are an important part of what we do. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated youth group that helps with spreading awareness to our communities. Hats off to the parents that involve their children in what will be the betterment of the future. Thanks to Paddy and all other Jr. members.

Below is just a clip of the full advertisement…


Please support Patrick (Paddy). He is an amazing 10 year old who has realized the value of living simply while helping others. This sale was his idea and so was his pledge to donate 25% of the proceeds to the National Brain Injury Foundation. What an opportunity to meet an extraordinary young man who makes good choices and GREAT lemonade!

Kahrmann Blog: We Are Not Children, We Are Not Slaves: Living With a Brain Injury - Part I and II.

Discrimination denies people what they deserve – their freedom.

I have lived with a brain injury for nearly 20 years and have worked in the field for nearly 15 of those years. Raised in a civil rights family I am very much an advocate for every individual’s right to be who they are, in safety, with equality, in the world they live in. When I talk with survivors of brain injuries in this state and others, the number one complaint I hear is, "They treat us like we are children." Tragically this is true....

Please take a look at the Kahrmann Blog for the rest of the story.
Very good reading and perspective.
