Juke Bar Fundraiser for IBRF

Thank you so much to everyone who showed up at Juke Bar to support the International Brain Research Foundation last week. I am excited to announce that we have used the funds raised to start two new funds. One will go directly to people who have suffered traumatic brain injury and will be used to help them cover expenses of treatments, including implementing IBRF-developed protocols. The second will be dedicated to those who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress, and will go directly to helping fund procedures such as Dr. Lipov’s Stellate Ganglion Block. At IBRF, we not only want to push the boundaries of neuroscience research, but we also endeavor to reduce the financial strain that these hardships put on families of those going through these biological and psychological injuries. Feel free to contact us for more information or if you are interested in donating to either of these funds!

Salute to Freedom Event

Dr. Philip DeFina and Alexandra DeFina, MSW, were proud to represent the International Brain Research Foundation at the Salute to Freedom event on May 24th, 2018. The event honored the Fisher family who do so much for our military and to keep the USS Intrepid preserved for all to visit learn about important American history. The Fisher House Foundation is best known for providing a network of homes where militaries families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. Additionally, they provide the Hero Miles and Hotels for Heroes programs which allow individuals to donate their frequent flyer miles and hotel points to aid family members of injured service members to be near them during their recovery process. As a veteran, this organization is very close to Dr. Philip A. DeFina‘s heart.

The event also honored Senator John McCain, who served on the USS Intrepid while it was in service, and has devoted his entire life to service, first in the Navy, and later as a Senator.
