Our Mission

To improve the lives and educational opportunities of those affected by traumatic medical events.

Our Impact

You First Foundation proudly supports medical research and those affected by brain injuries through three avenues:

  • Easing the financial burden of patients and their families.
  • Supporting neurointensive care and neurorecovery centers to further brain injury research and care.
  • Awarding scholarships to children affected by traumatic brain injuries.

Make a Difference

You can personally affect the lives of children and families who have experienced a traumatic medical event. Through participating in the golf tournament, Jeep raffle, or making a monetary donation, your contribution will go towards brain injury research and scholarships. Every donation, no matter how big or small, can make a positive impact. Thank you for your support!
