Buckling your seatbelt when you get in your car, wearing a helmet when you ride your bike and making sure you keep your stairway in your home clear of clutter, are everyday choices that we make that can help prevent injury. For more information about ways to help prevent brain injury please visit: cdc.gov.

"It’s not over; it’s good to be alive and to be an encouragement to others. I have been realizing this one hug at a time, one hopeful word at a time, and learning that deep thankfulness results in joy which cannot be explained but only experienced. I am surrounded by the love of others and you are too, come along with me and enjoy this beautiful ride we have been blessed with, believe it."

How Do We Define a Brain Injury?
NEOBIF has adopted the Brain Injury Network’s definition of brain injury (BI), which is defined as “…traumatic brain injuries, strokes, brain illness, and any other kind of brain injury acquired after birth. However, a BI does not include what are classified as degenerative brain conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease or Parkinson’s disease.”
