Here are some financial figures from the Brain Injury Association of America that really spell out how all of society is affected if brain injury survivors are not recognized as a priority and extensively treated:

  •   The average hospital-based acute rehabilitation is about $8,000 per day.
  •   The range for post-acute residential rehabilitation is about $850-$2,500 a day.
  •   Day treatment programs (e.g. four hours of therapy) are about $600 to $1,000 with no room and board.
  •   In the U.S., direct medical costs and indirect costs of TBI, such as loss of productivity, totaled an estimated $76.3 billion each year.

Just as no two people are alike, every brain injury is different. Every brain heals differently and some survivors need more therapy. The good news is that the majority of brain injury survivors go on and have great recoveries. But for some reason, there are a significant percentage of people, estimated at 15-20 percent, who don’t.

The 11 Foundation would like to help provide financial assistance toward the family's share of the cost of medical services and incidentals during the rehabilitation phase of recovery by developing and maintaining effective relationships with relevant service providers and funding bodies. The foundation will also assist families with finding resources to improve quality of life for people living with TBI’s and promote brain injury awareness and helmet safety.

We need your help to make a difference for these families facing the costs associated with brain injury rehabilitation. 

Help families with brain injuries by making a monetary donation today; no amount is too small.
