Kam Stupka, director of membership
services at the Iowa Association of Justice,
has served on the On With Life Board of
Directors since September 2012 and provides
a valuable perspective. Almost 10 years ago
Kam's son, Kendrick, suffered a traumatic
brain injury in a severe car accident.
What are your goals for On With Life
in the next few years?
We are currently raising funds for a new
outpatient center. The road to recovery is
long and difficult and the outpatient center
will offer services to individuals for a longer
period of time. I am also raising funds
through the Iowa Association of Justice's
"Justice In Deed" program for a full-time
service dog at On With Life.
What made you interested in joining the
On With Life Board?
Several years after Kendrick's accident I
knew it was time to get on the other side
of this trauma and give back. I became a
volunteer with my lab, Bailey, and found it to
be incredibly healing and rewarding.
What makes On With Life so special?
The teamwork and dedication is evident
the moment you walk into On With Life.
In the horrific life-changing event of a brain
injury, this is where you want your loved
one to recover and work towards the best
outcome possible. You will find amazing care
from amazing people here.
