NeuroHope of Indiana was established just a few years ago in a small gym with the support of UIndy and based on the dream and vision of founder Chris Leeuw. Chris suffered from a severe spinal cord injury in 2008 and was initially completely paralyzed from the neck down. Chris and his family experienced first hand the gap in health care that exists for those suffering from severe injuries once insurance runs out.
Neurohope was founded to bridge this gap, to offer affordable rehabilitation and wellness based on need, not based on ability to pay. The clinic continues to expand yet relies heavily on fundraising to cover the high cost of the health care and physical therapy services that are being provided at low cost to those in need.
THERE IS NO PREPARATION FOR TRAUMATIC INJURY.
The injured and their families find themselves in an ICU confronted with a reality that they never dreamed could happen. As they move to a rehabilitation hospital, begin physical therapy, and eventually are discharged the shock wears off, but the need for help continues as recovery evolves and new complications arise.
NeuroHope strives to make long-term access to cutting-edge rehabilitation in Indiana a reality.The NeuroHope mission extends beyond rehab. We are devoted to better the lives of those already living with paralysis by offering specialized, activity based wellness programs.
