Fathers, mothers, grandparents, and any family member providing care to recovering Traumatic Brain Injury survivors are welcome. These dinners are filled with honest sharing about the realities of caring for our loved ones. We share the things we are finding that work for recovery. We laugh a lot. We find strength in the shared experiences and support of knowing we’re not alone.
Coming up on Wednesday, August 24 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM at the Shanghai Garden in Seattle
