Supporting the most advanced regenerative medical treatments for veterans of Special Operations Forces.

Traumatic brain injuries have become the signature wound of the war on terror. There have been over 383,900 traumatic brain injuries reported by the Defense Medical Surveillance System.

“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.

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.
