Funds raised through HelpHOPELive catastrophic injury campaigns have helped restore independence and quality of life for more than 900 individuals and have provided over $33 million in financial support to cover unmet injury-related expenses.
Yearly expenses for a catastrophic injury, such as a spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury, can top $1 million.
In addition to ongoing recovery-based therapies and home health care, many patients who are dealing with paralysis or a brain injury need to make renovations to their homes and find new transportation options.
Working with HelpHOPELive's expert Fundraising Coordinators, families affected by a catastrophic injury can build a network of support that can have a significant impact on their ability to pay medical bills and access treatments.

"It's my pleasure to say that we won't be having any more fundraisers. Why am I so pleased? I'm finally living independently!
I'm so grateful for the help I've received. There's no doubt in my mind that I wouldn't be where I am today without all of your support."

"My family and I are very appreciative of HelpHOPELive. It has made it easy for us to raise funds the correct way, by setting up the nonprofit structure for us. It's served as a sounding board for setting up our events and (they) have provided solutions we couldn't have come up with ourselves. The bottom line is that when you go through a traumatic experience the last thing on you or your family's mind is the logistics of raising funds and HelpHOPELive was there to do that for us."
