The International Advisory Board of The Sarah Jane Brain Foundation already created the National Pediatric Acquired Brain Injury Plan (PABI Plan) and the millions of American families who have a youth with a brain injury are waiting for our federal government to begin implementing it.
It is a $2.9 billion, seven-year plan that does not require additional funding from Congress and it does not create an indefinite new federal program.
The PABI Plan will develop a seamless, standardized, evidence-based system of care that is universally accessible for the millions of American families who have a child with a brain injury regardless of where they live.
While we don't know if Adrian Peterson Jr. will ever play football, but we do know his brother will never have the choice.
Adrian Peterson is scheduled to play football today against the Carolina Panthers, adding to his staggering statistics as a professional athlete.
Will the death of his son be another statistic or will this new brain injury angel wake up our federal government to take action?
Patrick Donohue's daughter, Sarah Jane, was violently shaken by her baby nurse when she was just five days old, breaking four ribs, both collarbones and causing a severe brain injury. She is currently eight years old and cannot walk on her own or speak words. He founded the Sarah Jane Brain Foundation to prevent, identify, treat and eventually cure brain injury.
