Jessica's Story

On August 2nd 2009 Jessica was driving to church and struck by a speeding driver.
Doctors gave the family virtually no hope of ever waking their daughter and told them to put her into a facility. Instead, they took her home.
After treatments with IBRF, in December of 2011 Jessica began to respond to Yes/No questions using buttons. 
Jessica communicated to her family she was aware of her past and present. 
On Jessica’s 21st Birthday the State notified the family that their support would be cut by 80% and suggested moving her into a facility once again.  This option would give Jessica little chance of continued progress and cost the State thousands more.
