The parents of an 8-year-old son who suffered pediatric traumatic brain injury after a 2006 accident, Dawn and Kurt Schessl have become advocates for other child brain injury victims, according to the Catholic Courier online. The creators of a nonprofit organization aimed to help other families cope after a child brain injury, the Schessls focus their efforts on helping those families navigate the medical and educational systems involved after traumatic brain injury. The foundation also contributes to transporting brain injury victims from home and school to medical facilities and educating families about helpful resources available to them. In order to continue the good work, the Schessls have scheduled a Pediatric Traumatic Brain Injury gala in their home state of New York to raise funds for the organization. The event, which will be held at Casa Larga Vineyards from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. November 21, will include live and silent auctions, dancing, and interaction with master of ceremonies Glenn Johnson, Channel 13’s meteorologist in Rochester. Funds from the event will go toward providing schools and families with helpful manuals regarding children’s abilities after brain injury. The Schessls hope to give video resources to teachers explaining strategies for teaching students with brain injuries, as well.
