Thank you for considering donating to VBIS and NBIS. All funds raised by Toss The Boss will go towards supporting both non-profit organizations. We rely on donations to carry out our mission of offering support services for concussion and brain injury survivors at no cost.
Acquired brain injuries (ABI) can result from concussion, car accident, brain tumor, aneurysm, stroke, substance use, or assault. Acquiring a brain injury can have severe impacts on our person's life.
It is estimated that 452 people suffer a serious brain injury every day in Canada. This amounts to one person injured with a traumatic brain injury every 3 minutes. Additionally, brain injuries are highly subjective between individuals and can lead to a variety of cognitive symptoms including problems with memory, language, problem-solving skills, and emotional and behavioural changes. No brain injury is the same, making it even more essential to continue advocacy and increase community awareness. The Victoria and Nanaimo Brain Injury Societies believe that collaboration leads to progression, and have partnered up to continue to offer individual and group support and education to brain injury survivors and their families- free of charge.
With your continued help, we can continue to offer a safe environment for brain injury survivors to adjust to their new reality. Please donate to Toss The Boss, as all proceeds will go towards both the Nanaimo and Victoria Brain Injury Societies, and help us to continue to achieve a Vancouver Island community that is accepting and understanding of brain injury survivors.
