ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – One local organization’s mission is to promote the awareness of brain injury and they are using a form of art to help spread the word.

Jannelle Torres Groover, the Health Educator for the New Mexico Brain Injury Resource Center, and brain injury survivor, Ralph Frakes, joined KRQE’s This Morning team to discuss the Unmasking Brain Injury Project. Watch above.

The purpose of this project is to not only create awareness, but to also give the survivors a voice. This project gives them the means to educate others of what it is like to live with a brain injury and to show others that those living with this disability are like anyone else.

The project allows for the victims of brain injury to pain masks and display their story with them.

Mask will be on display during the Disabilities Rights Awareness Day on Tuesday, January 26 at the Roundhouse in Santa Fe.
