Our Programs and Projects

In recent years, TMF expanded its mission by creating wellness programs for residents at the Yountville Veterans Home of California. Each program helps veterans to improve their physical, cognitive, social and spiritual components of their health. Quality of life enhancement is our goal for as many residents as possible. Creating sustainable programs around exercise, healthy eating, and socialization in turn creates a community support system to help better achieve one’s wellness goals.

Education | Projects

Our goal is to maximize collaboration opportunities and to further education for healthcare providers, students and individuals engaged in sustaining and and advancing evidence based treatments for civilians, veterans, military, and their families that are affected by brain-related trauma and or tumors. 


A diagnosis of a brain tumor, TBI and or PTSD may be the most difficult challenge you and your family will ever have to face. Our goal is to offer you resources and the information necessary to move forward with confidence and hope.
