Welcome to HOPE TBI.

If your life has been affected by Trauma/Polytrauma or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)  [mild, moderate, or severe]; if you are a friend or a family member of someone who has been injured (chances are we all know someone who has been); if you are a healthcare provider, advocate, case manager, attorney, or insurance representative looking to have a better understanding – then this site is for you.

Please be patient as this website is a work in progress……we are UNDER CONSTRUCTION.  We are adding new pages and more information regularly.

If there is a topic or question you have that has not been answered in our pages, please let us know.  We will do our best to help you with figuring it out. Please explore each tab at the top.  You may find some useful information.

Please comment on the pages you read and let us know about any broken links.  Please share this site with others.  Help bring awareness.

This site is a way to help others, help myself find healing, and hopefully take the struggle out of finding resources and information when someone is faced with a Trauma from a Polytrauma or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Whether that is from a Sports Concussion, a Wreck (vehicle accident), Blunt Trauma from a Violent Act,  Veteran from one of our Armed Forces with a multi-system trauma, medical procedure (like a shunt), medical event (like a stroke), someone who has experienced a blast injury….or something not so seemingly simple/harmless as a slip and fall.

Perhaps you are the survivor of a Polytrauma or a TBI and you don’t know where to begin to get help, how to advocate for your care, or how things end.

No matter what, you are now, not alone in your experiences or your search for answers.

If you can find just one thing here in these pages that you did not know or might be useful, then here at H.O.P E TBI, our efforts will have been worth everything and made this all worthwhile.

One thing you can never do….no matter how bleak things appear or feel.

NEVER….ever….give up H.O.P.E.

  1. Would you be interested in my sons story? He sustained a TBI 19/4/15 when a vehicle he was a passenger in was hit by a drunk driver. His scull was decompressed 25 mm the area the side of your open hand and his whole brain moved 3.5mm to the left side. He has started a blog called life less limits. Please have a look and if you think it would be suitable contact him on Facebook. Dylan czeladka he is 23 years old
