What I do...
To aid teenagers with the mental and spiritual aspects of recovering from brain surgery.
New Fin generates revenue through generous sponsors, fundraisers, and merchandise to provide teenagers recovering from brain surgery with a gift to aid in their recovery, virtual mentoring, and consulting to families in relation to the American With Disabilities Act. I provide entertainment and educational items based on individual needs. For example, when I was recovering from my brain surgery, I would have loved a new fishing rod and equipment. Other teens may be interested in other forms of entertainment to help in their recovery process. Some may be interested in electronics, outing event tickets, musical instruments, etc... Keeping a high morale is key to the healing process.
Mentoring is to inspire, relate to, and increase morale in teenagers recovering from brain surgery. I am offering to listen and share my experience to teens as a fellow survivor. I offer positive reinforcement and hope for the future.
