During NeuroHope’s “Brackets For Good” fundraising campaign last spring, my friend Kara Bastida shared our story with her co-workers at Hensley Legal Group (HLG). She explained my recovery from a paralyzing spinal cord injury, my journey across the country to find a clinic that provided extended care, and the mission of NeuroHope to create a clinic like it in Indianapolis.
Shortly after Kara’s company email, John Hensley reached out to me personally to learn more. He was inspired by our vision and in awe that a place willing to provide affordable long-term therapy didn’t already exist in our city. He came to NeuroHope to see our therapists in action, heard our patient’s stories and was moved by what he saw.
Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting Hensley’s downtown office to speak with his team about NeuroHope’s mission and I’m thrilled to announce that Hensley Legal Group has provided a $15,000 donation for our expansion!
This is a tremendous gesture that comes at a perfect time for NeuroHope as we prepare for a move to a new location this fall. Hensley’s support doesn’t stop there. The company has committed to assist with annual funding and is devoted to organizing a charity run for NeuroHope next spring!
Their statement about the award:
“Hensley Legal Group, PC is proud to partner with NeuroHope, an organization that provides affordable rehabilitation for survivors of traumatic brain and spinal injuries. When we first visited NeuroHope, we were blown away by not only the hard work they are doing to help these survivors, but also their values of service and sacrifice. These values resonated with us because, just as John did when he founded Hensley Legal Group in 1998, NeuroHope has worked tirelessly to make their dreams a reality. We couldn’t believe the life-changing work that was taking place every day at NeuroHope, and we knew that this was an organization we wanted to support. Everyone struggling with a traumatic brain or spinal injury deserves the kind of quality, affordable care NeuroHope provides, and we’re honored to partner with such an incredible organization.”
The feedback I received after speaking with HLG staff was incredible. They are a passionate group and eager to help with our cause. It is truly an honor to have their support.
Community sponsors like HLG are an important part of what keep NeuroHope’s services strong. Our clinic boldly operates outside the boundaries of insurance reimbursements in order to provide patients with the care they need. We can’t do it alone! Organizations and community relationships like this make the difference.
