Betty Clooney Center

for Persons with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

The Betty Clooney Center (BCC), located near Los Angeles, California, has been serving the needs of persons with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) since 1983. The Center is a program of the Betty Clooney Foundation for Persons with Brain Injury. The Foundation was named in memory of Betty Clooney, who was Nick Clooney and Rosemary Clooney's younger sister, and the aunt of George Clooney. Betty died of an aneurysm in 1976.

As a result of Betty’s death, the Clooney family decided to establish a Brain Injury Center that addresses the needs of survivors of cognitive disabilities caused by traumatic brain injury, strokes, aneurisms, brain tumors, brain storms, brain cancer, and brain damage from trauma, age and other neurological injuries.

The Clooney family created a Center where a variety of rehabilitative classes, support groups, training events, vocational services, and assessments are provided to people who have sustained a traumatic brain injury.

The Betty Clooney Center for Persons with Traumatic Brain Injury, a wonderful community organization, has been fortunate enough to have the help of family members of people with traumatic brain injury, volunteers, and TBI professionals from the medical, social service, cultural arts and therapeutic industries.

KNOCK OUT on Special Sat. Edition Recovery Now with Kim Justus
"If life throws you a curve ball, hit it out of the park!" Sage advice from one ball players mom. My guest tonight is Tim Bransfield, survivor and soon to be published author of Life Interrupted: The Tim Bransfield Story From Fenway to Headway at age 17, when as a shortstop in the MA/CT Allstars Game, he was clocked with the baseball. Interestingly, THAT wasn't considered his TBI. That day came in 2002, in a horrific car accident. Join us a Tim shares his story from his original dreams, through one of those re-set moments in life, where we go from survivor to thriver. This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery. More will be revealed! Tune in, stop in and call in. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me." We focus on the four A's of Recovery...Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers. :) Some nights we will have a featured guest, and others we will introduce a topic of recovery, encouraging callers to join us in the discussion. The second part of the show is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire!
