Rehab Hospital of Indiana’s website:

"An Outing to Remember” is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Lisa Ann Thompson, a beloved daughter, sister, mother, wife, friend, doctor, and caregiver. Lisa possessed a real zest for life, accompanied by her great sense of humor. Her ability to give, rather than take, was unconditional and boundless. As a pediatrician, Dr. Lisa was a brilliant and compassionate practitioner.

In 1999, Lisa and her family’s life changed forever. In a split second, a trip to Bermuda turned into a living nightmare. Lisa was seriously injured in a motor scooter accident, almost losing a leg and suffering a brain injury. For several months, it was “touch and go,” but Lisa’s determination to live was more powerful.

All of us wanted Lisa to regain her ability to walk, talk, and be a mother to her four daughters. But because of her traumatic brain injury, the doctors told Lisa she would never practice medicine again. For Lisa, this was an unacceptable prognosis, and she began taking classes at Riley Hospital. Fifteen months later, Lisa returned to her practice because she knew her patients and co-workers needed her as much as she needed them.

As the years passed, the severe brain injury Lisa experienced lessened her ability to function in the same emotional capacity that she had known before. As a result, she found she could not meet all the demands she felt she needed to accomplish. Today’s golf outing is a testament to Dr. Lisa’s short, but extraordinary life.

In memory of Dr. Lisa Ann Thompson, we sincerely thank you for your participation and donation, which will go to the Dr. Lisa Thompson Center for Family Education. Your donation will help to pass Lisa’s torch of possibilities that she courageously illuminated for brain injury patients to come out of the darkness and into the light.

“I am absolutely certain that if my mother and my family were provided with the education and support offered by the BICS program that she would have lived to meet my first boyfriend and mend my first broken heart, she would have experienced firsthand my little sisters growing into beautiful young ladies, and she would have wiped tears away from her eyes as she watched my oldest sister graduate college”

  Proceeds to Benefit

The mission of the Dr. Lisa Thompson Center for Family Education at RHI is to assist families of traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients by providing education, community resources, stress management training, and social support. The Center was founded especially to help the individual and their families better adjust after hospitalization, and improve long-term outcome. Through this program, RHI offers a unique and internationally-recognized program for people with brain injuries and their families.

According to James D. Graham, Executive Director of the RHI Foundation,

“The program has made great strides in four years. To date, we have received over $1,300,000 in federal and state grants for research and for the development of new clinical treatments for people with brain injury. Additionally, the Center has attracted professional researchers and provided valuable training to aspiring externs.

Over 100 patients and their ‘caregivers’ (families) have benefitted from services provided by the Center. I think all who were present at the 2009 golf outing dinner were touched by Rachel Scholz and her statement that she and her family wouldn’t have made it without the TBI Coping Skills Program. The annual golf outing will help us continue to build the program as well as raise funds to provide care for people whose insurance fails to cover services that promote long-term adjustment and family well-being.”
