Brad & Jessica Berman - 2015 Burke Award Honorees

At the age of 37, Brad Berman, a father of two and an attorney specializing in tax law at GE, experienced a massive hemorrhagic stroke. Brad spent more than a month in a coma, and afterwards, had to relearn how to breathe, walk, and talk. Brad spent four months living at hospitals, including at Burke, and now continues to receive outpatient care at Burke, where he works with state-of-the-art robotic devices. Brad’s wife, Jessica, who is also the Deputy General Counsel at the National Hockey League (NHL), began Run 4 Brad, a community campaign to raise money to create and build a lower limb robotics program for the Restorative Neurology Clinic at Burke Medical Research Institute.
