Vital support for Traumatic Brain Injuries and Concussions
Welcome to my fundraising page for TBI critical care at the MGH.
At the age of sixteen, I endured a 14-hour long brain surgery and underwent a gruelling rehabilitation period. When rehab began, I did it alongside another boy who was the same age as me. Fast forward a few months, I had progressed to the point of skating back on the ice and competing as a hockey goaltender when the other boy had not met the basic milestones that were important for his rehabilitation post-surgery. Bearing witness to this impacted me on a very deep level and ignited my passion for raising TBI awareness, the importance of follow up and rigorous rehabilitation. I am grateful to the support I had around me which played a major role in my successful rehabilitation. Today, I want to ensure that every person is given the same support I was given.
The funds raised will be targeted to support Dr. Mahran Badran's 2 year Fellowship in Trauma and ICU Care at the Montreal General Hospital. Dr. Badran, currently Chief Resident, Department of Surgery at Galilee Medical Center, Israel, will come to the Montreal General Hospital in 2021 to work with the Trauma and Intensive Care teams. Fellowships are a crucial part of medical residents' training and core to the Montreal General Hospital's mission as a teaching hospital; in addition to the education aspect, these opportunities not enhance the care provided at the MGH and create lifelong relationships with other leading centres around the world, for on-going exchange and learning.
Together we can make a difference, let's offer vital support for vital care!
