Aaron Rocha's Fundraiser:

CAN Recover Holiday Fundraiser 2015

THE STORY:

Playing lacrosse at Babson College, I underwent two prolonged concussion recoveries (5 months during my sophomore year and 18 months starting my junior year).  Between missing weeks of school (even though being told to drop the remainder both times), having to make the decision that I would not return to lacrosse, and dealing with the social inability to spend time with friends, the early stages of the recovery were very difficult to cope with and led to swings of depression.

Mike Santee and I started CAN Recover with a very direct mission: 1) to provide peer-to-peer support for those undergoing a prolonged concussion recovery and their loved ones, 2) to educate the surrounding community about the effects of a prolonged recovery, and 3) to help in any capacity we can to advance the science in understanding the invisible injury.

This fundraiser will be critical to prepare our peer-to-peer support model in 2016, something that all of the people and families undergoing a prolonged concussion recovery have been asking for.  Thank you for your continued support to drive change in our community.

Best,

Aaron

CAN Recover Foundation, Inc. wrote -

CAN Recover's mission is to provide necessary support to student-athletes undergoing a prolonged concussion recovery from the perspective of other student-athletes who have experienced it first hand, educate the community to create a healthy recovering environment, and advance the clinical efforts to understand traumatic brain injuries in young athletes.  

Our goal this holiday season is to raise $3,000 in order to develop and launch our new online store in 2016.  Spreading awareness of our mission and network is a key part of what we do.  Additionally, we are developing a support model in order to provide handout material to schools, doctors, and individuals.  These initiatives will help CAN Recover reach more student-athletes and parents in need of support.
