“In a firefight, all the participants experience a TBI within the first 15 minutes.”
- Dr. Matt Steibel, Okyanos Center for Regenerative Medicine
Blast exposures from heavy gunfire, IEDs, land mines, mortar rounds, rocket-propelled grenades, and other combat-related activities, put our military service members at increased risk for traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
Past treatment options for TBI have been limited to surgery, counseling, and prescription drugs.
Today, medical advances in stem cell therapy offer new hope. TBI injuries can be healed.
This is what we do.
1. Identify SOF veterans in need
If you are a SOF veteran or referring physician seeking support for TBI treatment, Time for a Hero like to speak with you.
2. Treat veterans in world-class clinics
Time for a Hero works with doctors who are successfully treating TBI using stem cells and who are committed to the cause.
3. Cover the cost of treatments
Average cost per case is over $30,000. We assist with treatment costs, including underwriting expenses.
”The effects are devastating. People want us to all have perfect, fairytale lives when we come home. A TBI guarantees that won’t happen.”
- Special Operations Veteran
Since 2006, blast exposures have been the most common cause of injury among American soldiers treated at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
New advancements in TBI-targeted stem cell therapies are producing amazing results, but access to treatment can be difficult and cost prohibitive.
