You're at the Trauma Center
Being notified that someone you love has been transported in life threatening condition to a Trauma Center is frightening. Your immediate thought is to get to the hospital as quickly as possible to be with your loved one. There isn’t time to think about what you might need or how long you might be needed there.
After being informed that your loved one has suffered a significant injury to their brain, there is little you can do except wait and pray. Everyone is left in a fog of uncertainty, desperation and helplessness. No family can ever be prepared for this type of event. If you are at the Trauma Center, we have helpful information on our site for you.
You are not alone. TBI Hope has created a lasting community of support for the families of those suffering from traumatic brain injury. Click here to visit our "Next Steps" page, or visit our support page to contact Tracy Porter, the person who is responsible for the Totes for Hope Program.
