2021 #GivingTuesday

This year has been challenging for everyone.  TBIRC would like to thank all who have supported us in our mission to improve the lives of brain injury survivors in Northwest Ohio.  This year for #GivingTuesday we would like to give back to our community.  When you purchase a fleece blanket on Tuesday, December 1st,  we will donate a blanket to a local family center.  Our fleece blankets are handmade by survivors, caregivers and volunteers and make unique gifts.  Choose from hundreds of patterns including sports teams, characters, and even blankets for first responders.  You can also shop from home with our online store and have your order shipped or make arrangements for curbside pickup.

 

A Conversation Between Brain Injury Survivors

A Conversation Between Brain Injury Survivors

In November 2019 Bob Woodruff, ABC journalist and traumatic brain injury survivor visited TBIRC to share his story with other survivors. Recently Jackie Moore, founder and executive director, shared a conversation with Bob regarding their paths to a new life after brain injury. 

To learn more about Rogue Trip, one of Bob’s latest projects with National Geographic and Disney+ where he partnered with his son, Mack, to visit 6 countries off the beaten path, click on the image below. 

An Evening with Bob Woodruff

Bob Woodruff, ABC News journalist and brain injury survivor, was the featured guest at a dinner at the Traumatic Brain Injury Resource Center.  Bob and other survivors shared their stories during the intimate evening.  Michaela Marshall, a reporter with Toledo’s 13abc, interviewed Bob and Jackie Moore about the event.

Feed Your Brain!

Rachel Scheider, a reporter from Toledo’s 13abc, stopped by the center to meet with survivors, discuss the role that nutrition plays in recovery, and learn about a food drive to support the center following a major renovation of the kitchen.

What makes TBIRC special?

Since we opened in April 2015, graduate students from the University of Toledo Speech Language Pathology (SLP) have led group sessions with brain injury survivors under the direction of a clinician.   In the following video created by students, survivors share their perspective on the benefits of participating in activities at the Center.
