From the cheers when we reached our fund-a-need goal to the respectful silence as Eddie Hudson spoke, generosity shined ever so brightly on December 4. We are truly grateful to the over 730 guests in attendance who gathered to celebrate HCMC.

It looks like we will meet our overall goal of raising $250,000 for the Traumatic Brain Injury Center which will support the purchase of equipment for neuro vision rehabilitation, establish an urgent needs fund for patients, and expand our TBI research and prevention education efforts.

A special thank you to the patients who offered their stories that evening: to Eddie Hudson who spoke so passionately, and to those in our video which you can view by playing the file below or going to

Congratulations to Meghan Walsh, MD and Gaylan Rockswold, MD, our 2014 Guiding Light Award recipients.

Let's do it all again in 2015! Save the date: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2015
