Whenever a person or family is suddenly confronted with the world-changing experience of a catastrophic spinal cord injury or brain injury, there are a host of questions but seemingly few solid answers. These questions involve a wide spectrum of issues: health, rehabilitation, hope for recovery, current research, financial, legal, and the list goes on.

Medical providers are often reluctant to give too much information based upon a legitimate concern of giving false hope. Providers are also pressed for time, making it logistically difficult for them to spend time with a new brain injury or spinal cord injury survivors and their families answering questions in detail. Moreover, there are many questions that doctors and their staff are unable to answer, including questions about pressing financial and legal issues. Support groups, government resources, and other sources of potential assistance are also difficult or impossible to easily identify
