Lisa Banasiewicz, Brett B's Mom Kitchen Skatepark
….sometimes you just need a little help from your friends, and other times you make new friends during a very difficult time. This is what happened to our family when our son, Brett Banasiewicz, suffered a traumatic brain injury on his BMX bike on August 23, 2011. Dustin Grice is one of Brett’s BMX buddies that reached out to us about the Link Foundation. Jeff Troldahl, founder of the Link Foundation, and Dustin Grice designed a “Maddog” bracelet with Brett’s signature colors pink and green. The Link Foundation sold many bracelets via the internet and also allowed us to sell the bracelets at Brett’s BMX Skate Park. The proceeds went to Brett’s mounting medical bills. Brett was able to obtain the best care in the United States that also included hyperbarics. Brett had to relocate to Texas because the state of Indiana is not licensed to administer hyperbarics for TBI’s..
