The Brain Injury Association of Louisiana (BIALA), in partnership with the United Spinal Association/LA Chapter, is a crucial resource for survivors of brain and spinal cord injuries throughout Louisiana. Thank you for your generosity to help improve the quality of life for these individuals and their caregivers.
Participating in the virtual support groups has brightened my days and helps me feel less alone and depressed. Thank you for looking out for people with disabilities and making sure we stay connected to others.
During an incredibly difficult time, when I called the BIALA hotline desperate for help, I was greeted by someone who showed that she truly cared, and I can't say thank you enough. She was a life support for me, and I don't know how I would have survived without her. She was there when I had no one else and brought me peace and comfort and understanding. There is no amount of money or thanks in the world that could repay her for her kindness and compassion. She was and continues to be such a blessing to me.
When I called the helpline, I was so happy to learn about the trust fund I could apply for. I had no clue about it but am glad I know now because living with a brain injury is expensive and hard. The lady I spoke with was so nice, took the time to answer all my questions, and made me laugh. She gave me some hope and that is pretty cool.
