Maureen Campbell-Korves Passes Away

It is with sadness that I must report the passing of Maureen Campbell Korves, a past president of the Brain Injury Association of New York Sate following a lengthy illness. 

Maureen assumed the presidency of the Brain Injury Association in some very troubling times for the association and helped guide it back to its true mission.  Maureen, became involved with the brain injury and disability advocacy movement following her own traumatic brain injury sustained as a result of striking her head while a passenger in a taxi cab.  Maureen learned that their was little respect shown for victims of brain injury and few options for treatment.  She took it upon herself to improve the quality of life for persons with a brain injury and their families and became actively involved with the Brain Injury Association of New York State, then known as the New York Head Injury Association.

Her advocacy skills and commitment soon came to the attention of New York State and she was appointed to the Governors Commission on Disabilities. 

Maureen will be sorely missed by all who knew her and all whose lives were bettered by her commitment to improve life for persons with a brain injury and their families.

A wake has been scheduled to be held at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home, 1076 Madison Avenue, New York City today (Wednesday) from 7 PM to 9 PM and tomorrow from 2 PM to 4 PM and 7 PM to 9 PM.

Funeral services are scheduled for Friday at 11:15 AM at St. Ignatius Loyola Church, Park Avenue & 84th street, New York City.
