We are a group of friends who got to know each other through Dr Roman Olejniczak – each of us used to be his patient. We owe Roman and the rehabilitation programme he offered us at his neuro-rehabilitation clinic the ability to stand on our own two feet – both literally and metaphorically. Our friendship, that we built on respect and trust, has lasted for several years now, and we have come to know each other inside out. One day Roman suggested that we should start a foundation to help other victims of accidents. Since we all knew what pain and suffering taste like, we decided to TEAM UP – four guys, each with his own history. The idea was that under Roman’s leadership we would offer help to other people in need, who were not lucky enough to be able to pay for a professional, high-level REHABILITATION that would allow them to function in the society independently.
