At the Forefront of Brain Injury Research,
Prevention & Care.

Brain injury affects not only the individual, but their family and friends, too. Through the Nexus Hope Foundation, we are proud to make a positive impact in the brain injury community through community awareness, charity care, and research. Through our work, we hope to increase understanding to prevent brain injury while conducting groundbreaking research that will lead us to better outcomes.

At Nexus Hope Foundation, we are paving the way for brain injury awareness and prevention. From cutting-edge research to providing essential equipment to long-term care patients, we are on a mission to reduce the impact of brain injury. Led by Dr. John W. Cassidy, a pioneer in the neurorehabilitation field, our research team brings decades of experience to our work. We are privileged to work with community leaders, educators, organizers, and healthcare professionals to make a lasting impact.
