Updated on December 11, 2008

More than 300,000 men and women who served our country return home with Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI. More than half of our fallen heroes are unable to get the proper treatment, care and diagnosis needed for their injuries.

Traumatic Brain Injury occurs when the head suddenly and violently hits an object or when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue. Symptoms of TBI can be mild, moderate, or severe depending how much the brain is damaged.

Mild TBI can cause headache, confusion, light-headedness, dizziness, blurred vision or tired eyes, ringing in the ears, bad taste in the mouth, fatigue or lethargy, a change in sleep patterns, behavioral or mood changes, and trouble with memory, concentration, attention, or thinking

Moderate to severe TBI symptoms include the same as above along with headache that gets worse or does not go away, repeated vomiting or nausea, convulsions or seizures, an inability to awaken from sleep, dilation of one or both pupils of the eyes, slurred speech, weakness or numbness in the extremities, loss of coordination, and increased confusion, restlessness, or agitation.

Support Our Troops

The brave men and women who put their lives on the line fighting for our freedom deserve to receive the best medical treatment available for their injuries. They have more than earned it. Show your support for America's fallen heroes by making a donation to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. Your donation weather it be $1 or $5 or even $50 will help to build a world class state of the art research and physical rehabilitation facility where active duty personnel and veterans with TBI can receive the medical care they need. This will be called the National Intrepid Center of Excellence located in Maryland.

Show your support for Americas Fallen Heroes by visiting the site above and making a donation in any amount you can. It is the least we can do to help our fellow Americans during a time of need.

      Yes even if all hubbers donated just $1 it would really help. It is sickening to think about all they have done for our country and still not be able to get proper medical care. Thanks for your comments

      I will do that. Thank you for supporting our troops. My husband is a vetern of Desert Storm (Marines) & Iraq War (Army). He's only 31 but has been in the military since he was 18. He's lost a few friends in these wars and we donate at least once a month to these oragnizations. Great hub.
