In a recent blog, I shared that ABC Anchor Bob Woodruff was doing his first on-air report since his injury in Iraq. Now, I’m pleased to let you know that the Brain Injury Association of America has partnered with Bob Woodruff, his wife Lee and his family to raise awareness of traumatic brain injury and to administer the newly created Bob Woodruff Family Fund for TBI to assist servicemen and women and their families affected by the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Woodruff will also file a series of reports for ABC’s World News Tonight, Good Morning America and Nightline throughout the month of March. The reports will cover various aspects of brain injury and will include some individuals featured in BIAA’s Brain Injury Awareness Month campaign, "Living with Brain Injury: As Diverse as We Are."
Susan Connors, president and CEO of BIAA, said, "We are honored to assist Bob and Lee as they embark upon their mission to assist returning veterans with TBI and their families. Their actions are a rallying point for both military and non-military TBI survivors and their families to finally receive the kind of support and cognitive treatment services they so desperately need."
