"My recovery continues each day"
Ryan was performing with her cheering squad when a flyer on top of her stunt group fell and landed on her. A short time later, she collapsed and did not regain consciousness. She had sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI), along with a collapsed lung and fractured vertebrae in her neck. Read Ryan's story

Get Involved

get involvedThe Brain Injury Association was founded by families who live with the consequences of brain injury and understand the challenges first-hand. Our top priority is to support survivors and families who do not know where to turn across the Commonwealth.

On a daily basis, our staff provides information and resources to survivors, families and professionals regarding benefits, medical facilities, housing, legal services, and more. The Association sponsors 34 support groups throughout the state that offer educational, social, and recreational activities. BIA-MA advocates for funding and improved services at the state and federal levels. 

Our award-winning prevention programs are designed to reduce the instance of brain injury in Massachusetts. Our court-referral programs, Brains At Risk and Gateway, educate first-time adult offenders and youth. To reduce risky behaviors, our Think A-Head program develops healthy living habits for students in grades 3-12. Last year more than 22,000 individuals of all ages were reached through these programs.

Our annual conferences and trainings have improved the skills and education of professionals in the brain injury field and have provided a lifeline to many survivors and families looking for new information, coping mechanisms, and hope for the future.

Without the support of donors, sponsors, members and volunteers, these achievements are not possible.
