Our History

Brad Jones with his son Henry and wife Monika.The Brain Recovery Project was formed in May of 2011 by Brad and Monika Jones.  Brad and Monika’s son Henry has undergone three surgeries to complete a left anatomical hemispherectomy for intractable epilepsy due to total hemimegalencephaly.  After his functional hemispherectomy at the age of three months old, Brad and Monika grew increasingly frustrated by the lack of information in the medical and therapy community about how to best rehabilitate their child.  Would he learn to walk? Would he talk?  How would they get him to reach his full potential?  When no clear answers were provided, they decided to form this foundation.  The Brain Recovery Project received its non-profit status from the Internal Revenue Service in August of 2011.  We are a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation.
