Today on GoFundMe: Traumatic Brain Injury

Each Thursday in December, Patch is highlighting an area fund-raising campaign.

Each Thursday in December, Patch is highlighting a local GoFundMe campaign in the area.

Today's focus is this page -- Tony's TBI Treatment and Travel. TBI refers to Traumatic Brain Injury. Excerpts from the fund-raising page:

"On October 17, 2010 Tony Trevino was in a motorcycle accident in which he sustained two skull fractures, broken ribs, damage to his left elbow and right ankle along with a large amount of road rash. ... An MRI revealed that there is damage to the front left temporal lobe of his brain.

"While military insurance picks up the expense of some appointments, therapy, medications, etc. it does not cover many expenses related to those appointments. ...  If you would like more information about TBI or our situation, please feel free to contact us."

Check out the GoFundMe page for further information.

Unlike other crowdfunding websites like Kickstarter, GoFundMe focuses more on helping people fund community or personal goals. GoFundMe is a Patch partner.
