U.S. Army Navy Veteran
Marcus Institute for Brain Health

Unfortunately, the term "Life Changing Event" is used too much in our society. However, I really do believe that my experience with the Marcus Institute was/is a life-changing event for me and my family. 


The first time I saw a VA neurologist for TBI, they told me that "after two years, you've healed all that you can, and this is how it’s going to be for the rest of your life." That was probably one of the lowest points in my life because it took away hope for recovery or a better quality of life.


For me, one of the best things about the Marcus Institute is the hope for a better life returning. My quality of life has improved; headaches are less severe and frequent; and my relationships with my family has improved - the future is bright. For that, I cannot express my gratitude deeply enough. It was and continues to be a real-life altering event, in the best way possible. 


My goal now is to get other veterans who desperately need the same to go. Thank you for everything, it means the world to me and my family.


Joe took a piece of the honey calcite that MIBH gives to patients during commencement. He had a friend make this piece of jewelry with it and gave it to his wife for their 27th anniversary.
