This year marks a milestone for the JMB Foundation, James Macready-Bryan and his family. In October 2016 it will be 10 years since the tragic event that became the reason our Foundation exists. James was assaulted in October 2006, on his 20th birthday, and many will remember the shock as the extent of his injuries became clear, and the reality of his future existence – living with a permanent, catastrophic brain injury – hit home.

The JMB Foundation was established initially to raise funds for James and now, almost 10 years on, we are able to help more young Australians who are living with acquired brain injury (ABI). Often their needs are far greater than the limited government funding available can cover. The JMB Foundation’s goal is to help fill the funding gap for these young people so they can experience a better level of care and comfort, and an improved quality of life.

Please help us to help more young men and women whose lives can be improved by the extra therapy, special equipment, home modifications or opportunities for community access that JMB Foundation grants make possible.

You can do this by joining us for lunch on Wednesday 5th October 2016. Bring a friend, or get a group together and make up a table of 10 at Leonda by the Yarra.
