After someone suffers a brain injury, their life many change in many ways. On top of forgetfulness, headaches and other physical and mental problems, brain injuries can also have a negative impact on peoples' financial future. In Polk, and other cities throughout the state of Iowa, suffering a brain injury may force someone to take time off work, which can result in financial hardships.
A rehabilitation center based in Iowa recently received equipment to help people who have suffered a brain injury recover. The equipment, which includes a $36,000 bicycle, was obtained by the rehabilitation center as a result of an organization that was founded in 2012. Over a four-year period, the foundation raised over $500,000.
