In between my therapies, I wanted to keep moving forward so I reached out to find some ideas of ways to keep my brain working. They were so helpful and friendly and gave me many great ideas to try. We were even laughing together, and it made it feel like I was talking to a friend.

Bobby Bodin

Individual with TBI

Having a spinal cord injury is very challenging but with the support I have received from BIALA, life is a little easier. The kindness and compassion I receive when I call the hotline is wonderful plus the resources I learn about are invaluable. My spirits are always lifted after I reach out to BIALA.

Caroline Nick

Individual with SCI

After my husband suffered a spinal cord injury, I reached out to BIALA and found not only a wealth of information but an organization that gave me hope. At times, things seemed very bleak but I would call the resource center, and they were able to help me through those difficult moments. I will forever be grateful for the compassion and understanding that I received when I called the helpline.
