“It was just all of a sudden, waking up and just being this new person. I don’t want that to ever happen to anybody again.” – Cindy LaRoe, MD
First GREEN Bank’s Founder, Ken LaRoe, was inspired by his wife, Cindy, to create The Art of Medicine Gala. In 2011, she sustained a brain injury in a competitive biking accident. The injury prevented Cindy temporarily from being able to move her legs or read, caused her to have seizures and cost her career in medicine, but it also led her down a path of discovering her artistic talents. She hopes her talent can raise awareness and money for others with brain injuries.
