Welcome to Kaiti Pierce's Page

I support March On for Brain Injury in my dad's memory and for all BIANYS has done to support us and so many others throughout New York State.

Frank Pierce was more just a person with a brain injury. He was a Husband, a Father, an Advocate, and a Friend. He was active in the Rochester Chapter/support group and later a dedicated BIANYS Board Member. He helped start new support groups, attended numerous health fairs, distributed bike helmets to children in need, volunteered at local agencies, and co-founded a local day program for individuals with brain injuries.

In 1997 my dad sustained his TBI when he fell off the back of a work truck moving equipment at a job site. It wasn't until he began having issues with short term memory, fatigue, lack of focus, and ability to control emotions that we decided to seek help. Our family's General Practitioner referred us to a Neurologist who diagnosed him with Post Traumatic Concussion Syndrome.
Since his passing in 2008, I have become much more involved in the TBI community. I ran the Rochester Chapter support group for from 2011-2016. I am a BIANYS Board Member/Secretary to the Board. I am the Chairperson of the Family Fund committee which provides financial assistance to persons with brain injuries and their families to enhance quality of life. This past year I participated in the third annual Advocacy Day in Albany at the Legislative Office Building and spent the day meeting with representatives to discuss the specific needs of person's with brain injuries and the potential impact of the proposed health care changes.

Through advocacy, education, research, and community support, your donation to the Brain Injury Association of NYS brings help, hope and healing to families like mine and millions of others.
