I’m trying to help spread the word about this since it’s about my cousin and a very good cause.
Jon Thomann was injured a couple of years ago, and was in a coma for several months. He finally got back to walking, but he still has a limp and is very unbalanced. He’ll never be the same but at least he is alive. Jon’s father, Joe is working on trying to raise money to get this started in Mid-Missouri. They’ve raised about a third of the money they need, but still have a long ways to go.
Here’s the link to the article on the KOMU site: http://www.komu.com/news/family-pushes-to-bring-brain-injury-center-to-columbia/
Here’s the link to Jon’s caringbridge site: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/jonthomann/
If you want to help with the center itself, the donation on the caringbridge site listed above is not for the center – that’s for caringbridge donations, which is a good cause too…. The center’s website is http://www.headinjuryctr-stl.org/jeffday.html
