Give a gift this holiday season that helps ensure no one is alone after a brain injury, concussion, or stroke.
It’s estimated 1 in 3 people will experience an acquired brain injury in their lifetime. Despite this prevalence, there are few services available to help people adjust to life after injury. This is where YOU can help.
When you give to Schurig Center, you help fill gaps in care, inspire renewed hope and open the door to new possibilities for survivors and their families. You let survivors know they are valuable members of our community who deserve access to the support they need to not only survive, but thrive after brain injury.
If you are in a position to help, please donate by December 31, 2022 and give as generously as you can. Your donation will help provide rehabilitation, support, and connection for over 400 people in the new year. Thank you!
The People Schurig Center Serves are All of “Us”
Brain injury is an equal opportunity disability that does not discriminate. It can happen to anyone, to professionals, parents, daughters, sons, friends, and neighbors… our community. Although the circumstances of their injuries may differ, they all share a common experience. They have each survived an injury that has dramatically changed their lives and the lives of their loved ones.
Meet Marc & Sharon
“Retraining the brain is different from retraining a muscle. It can be very unpredictable and not linear. The team helped connect us to support and resources that have made a big difference in Marc’s life and our life as well. We are very grateful.” – Sharon, family caregiver
After a lifetime of dedicated volunteer service to his community, Marc found himself needing some help after his life was changed by a hemorrhage during post-surgery care. With you and the rest of Schurig Center’s community of friends by their side, Marc and his family are not alone as they adjust to the life changes that come after brain injury.
