The impact of your donation
Thank you for considering to donate to Lifeyana, this means a lot. Your donation will be used to help a patient.
How does this work?
As you may know, Lifeyana offers a course to help patients with concussion or post-concussion get the support they need and recover faster. This course is marketed at a small price ($149 with lifetime access) to help Lifeyana cover costs, which have far surpassed its revenue since the start in 2020.
However, many patients have financial problems due to the situation they found theirselves in since sustaining their brain injuries. They write to us that they want access to the course or to coaching, but cannot afford it. We want to be able to help them in a sustainable way.
Help a patient and support Lifeyana
Your net donation will be directed toward giving a person on our wait list access to either the course or coaching. Suppose your net donation amounts to $50 and a patient with limited means is on the waitlist for the course. Once we have collected $99 more in net donations, the patient will directly be granted lifetime access.
Your donation works two ways: it also supports Lifeyana. Only from a place of love could the money and time invested in creating the website, podcast, course, and all resources be created. Until today, Lifeyana has far more costs than revenue. By donating, you help make our work sustainable in the long run.
The amount you donate is not the amount we receive (your net donation). The net donation is the total amount you donate minus Paypal fees. Paypal fees are 3,4% of the amount you donate plus €0,35 per transaction.
Your net donation goes – in its entirety – to funding a patient’s access to the course or coaching.

Hi! I’m Melanie
I sustained a “mild” concussion in 2012. I struggled and eventually fell into a depression while my symptoms lingered and doctors told me to learn to live with them over the next 2 years.
It was then that I realized that I had made 1 crucial assumption: that I had no power and doctors knew best. When I started working on my beliefs, recovery mindset and my own recovery program, I promised myself to find a way to get my life back – and to then help others do the same.
I made a full recovery by the end of 2018, 6,5 years after injury. Lifeyana is the manifestation of my mission.
Publication in the Lancet Neurology
In addition to offering patients tools and support, I collaborate with researchers around the world to change medical post-concussion protocols. Recently, a letter I co-wrote with fellow TBI survivor James Piercy to urge medical practitioners and researchers to change the way concussion is viewed and treated, got published in The Lancet Neurology.
