Comfort for Today, Hope for Tomorrow
A brain injury can happen anytime, anywhere to anyone. Brain Injuries do not discriminate. An injury that happens in an instant can bring a lifetime of physical, cognitive and behavior challenges and early, equal adequate access to care will greatly increase overall quality of life. Tennessee has approximately 6,000 individuals hospitalized each year from a traumatic brain injury. These numbers do not include those who are treated and released from the emergency room and do not include acquired brain injuries from strokes, tumors, brain bleeds, or other causes.
