Welcome To The Michael A. DeStefano Foundation

The Michael A. DeStefano Foundation was founded in 2009 to provide advocacy and assistance to families whose loved ones have suffered from traumatic brain injuries.

The Foundation was founded on behalf of the DeStefano family and their 19 year old son, Michael, who was in a tragic automobile accident, leaving him with traumatic brain injuries.

Michael’s accident on July 8th, 2009 was followed by over two months of intensive care at Loyola Hospital where he remained in a coma for most of his stay. He is now undergoing extensive therapy and working toward recovery.

The collective prayers and support of the friends and family of the DeStefanos, and your generosity during these difficult times will be unforgettable solace to them and Michael. The road is a long one but we are hopeful that Mike’s spirit, energy and love of life will ignite the fire that lights up miracles.
