Who We Are
The FCRC is a collection of passionate individuals, dedicated to the community and those within it. We understand the devastating impacts that concussions can have on peoples' lives. Thus, the non-profit was formed to help fund concussion research and local informative workshops aimed on growing the general knowledge of minor traumatic brain injuries (MTBI's) and the implications they have on communities.
Why We Want to Help
Long-term effects of concussions, also known as post-concussion syndrome, contain many features seen in psychological conditions. For example, the reported symptoms of ADD are very similar to that of MTBI. Any preexisting symptoms are exacerbated with a concussion. The mechanisms involved are not well understood, and family relationships often become strained and dysfunctional as a result.
