RESTART Your Life / RENEW Your Mind is an assistance fund for Traumatic Brain Injury Survivors founded in 2015. In recent years, brain injury has reached new levels due to the high amounts of awareness and publicity in our society. RESTART is committed to being an advocate for all survivors of “The Hidden Injury”. We have been attending increased numbers of events such as Brain Injury Assn of PA Conferences, Brain Injury Assn of DE, Hospital of University of PA Awareness Day, and Brain Injury Awareness Day on Capitol Hill where we met with Federal Congressional members lobbying them for their involvement and support.
RESTART has also donated to the Bryn Mawr Rehab Support Group regularly. Are you a member of any support group we have not yet spoken too? Contact us to set up an appointment to see how we can help you
On April 19, 2009, Kevin McDonald fell 15 feet down a flight of stairs and landed on his neck. He was found unconscious and First Responders were immediately called. After being transported to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Kevin lay in a coma for four days and stayed in intensive care for an additional two weeks. The fall resulted in a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). He lost his ability to perform daily life functions, such as walking, talking, and comprehending what was going on. Kevin was transferred to the Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital to begin his long road to recovery.
