Alyssa's Breath is a 501c3 non-profit public charity. Our mission is to increase public and professional awareness and understanding of brain injury and methods of prevention
We will accomplish this by educating our community, sharing research and information regarding new technologies, and by raising funds to help brain injured individuals and their families.
We could not accomplish any of our goals without the help and support of our wonderful volunteers.......SEE BELOW
The nonprofit organization, Alyssa's Breath, TBI survivors, their family and friends and other supporters have joined the ranks of national, state and community organizations to remain educated on "how to" increase awareness of TBI as well as methods of prevention. We at Alyssa's Breath have researched TBI websites for years and spoken to many physicians and professionals. We've tried to stay "on track" regarding new laws that would affect TBI individuals and their families. To assist us in that, we've just this year joined the Brain Injured Association of America (BIAA) as constituent members in order to gain insight and further education opportunities. The BIAA is the country's oldest and largest nationwide brain injury advocacy organization. Their website includes too many things to mention here but we encourage all of you to visit their site or give them a call. They have been very helpful to us! The BIAA also offers a publication entitled "The Challenge!" which is wonderful!!!!
