Happy Fourth of July from Healing Heroes Network!




Dear Friends & Supporters, 

The Fourth of July makes us think of fireworks, barbecues, parades and get-together's with family and friends...  These privileges and liberties we take for granted would not be possible without the courage and bravery of our nation's service men and women.

At Healing Heroes Network, we can't wait to celebrate America's Freedom and Independence, that's what it's all about!   We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you all to celebrate the brave Heroes all over our country who have fought and are STILL fighting to preserve that very freedom and independence to this day...  

Today, amidst the chaos, parties, food and fireworks, we hope that you will take a moment to THANK A HERO, and pay your respects to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us to enjoy this inspirational, American holiday.


From all of us at Healing Heroes Network, we wish you a happy and safe Fourth of July!  

For Our Troops,




YOU can help Healing Heroes Network support our nation's injured 
service men and women by making a tax deductible donation!

PTSD Awareness Day




You may have heard the words "invisible injuries" before, or even the term "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder" (PTSD).  But did you know that most of today's retired combat service members are returning home from the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan with this debilitating disorder?  It is hard to diagnose because it is hard to talk about. But our Heroes do not leave the sights, sounds and emotions of what they experience on the battlefield, and the symptoms of PTSD are becoming increasingly worse because of the negative stigma surrounding the term.  

PTSD is claiming families, personal relationships, careers, and even lives.  
We NEED to talk about it.

Starting in 2010, Congress named June 27th "PTSD Awareness Day". The purpose of this day is to remember that not everyone who came home from war, left the war. By raising public awareness of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder AND its effective treatments, we are opening the door for our heroes to know it is okay to come forward and ask for help. 

Join Healing Heroes Network today and start a conversation about PTSD and how we can help our nation's Heroes overcome it.  Together, we can all help those affected by PTSD.

Did you know??....




Greetings from Healing Heroes Network!

As summer is upon us, what are some of the things that you enjoy doing with your family for fun?  The kids are almost out of school, the weather is bright and sunny, and that summertime excitement and sense of freedom is in the air...

Did you know that SeaWorld Parks all over the country offer FREE admission passes for military service members and their families?? Waves of Honor is a program that permits any U.S. active duty military, activated or drilling reservist, or National Guardsman to one complimentary park admission per year for military personnel and as many as three direct dependents!  Most parks have a veteran program as well, if you are not currently active duty.

All you have to provide is your proof of military status, and your family could be off on an exciting summertime adventure at one of these great theme parks:



SeaWorld
Aquatica
Busch Gardens
Sesame Place
Adventure Island

Be sure to check it out, and from all of us here at Healing Heroes Network, we wish you all a safe and happy summer!

Lighthouse Project with BB & T Bank

      


Healing Heroes Network is excited to announce that we were chosen for the 2015 BB&T Lighthouse Project!

The Lighthouse Project is an initiative that BB&T embarked on several years ago, a company wide program to make a positive difference in the communities where BB&T branches are located.  When a BB&T Association Services representative contacted us at Healing Heroes Network, asking us to be a part of this amazing project, we were thrilled to accept the offer! The Lighthouse Project will be supporting two crucial Healing Heroes Network programs:Tablets For Heroes and Morale Packages.  

Tablets For Heroes is a program committed to helping veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), after serving in Iraq or Afghanistan since 9/11/01, by providing them with tablet computers for cognitive re-development, memory assistance and much more.  The Morale Package program strives to show our service men and women stationed overseas that we care and support them, by sending care packages to military bases deployed abroad with some of the comfort items from home that we take for granted, spreading hope and boosting morale among their bases.

The Lighthouse Project will be donating a number of tablets to Healing Heroes Network for the Tablets For Heroes program, and will also be purchasing and putting together Morale Packages for HHN to send overseas to military bases deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan.  We are so excited to have this kind of support and partnership, right here in our own backyard!

If you live in the Tampa Bay area and have a loved one serving overseas, we would love to send their base a Morale Package, sponsored by BB&T Bank Association Services and The Lighthouse Project!  Or, if you are a service member in the Tampa Bay area suffering from PTSD and/or TBI, and could benefit from the use of a tablet computer for cognitive assistance, we would love to get you approved for a Tablet.  Please contact Healing Heroes Network at (727) 781-4376, or email us at info@healingheroes.org.

Thank you to the team at BB&T Bank!

A Hero's Story


A Hero's Story:
Army E-4 Specialist Jeffery K.


Jeffrey K. served in the United States Army for 6 years.  He began his enlistment stationed in Fort Riley, KS, before re-enlisting to Ft. Stewart, GA.  It was during this time that he was deployed to Tikrit, Iraq, to serve in Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF).

While performing duties during his deployment, Jeffrey sustained numerous injuries lifting heavy equipment, recovering vehicles, and was also hit by an I.E.D. (Improvised Explosive Device), severely injuring his lower back, right shoulder and legs.  For his service and outstanding performance, Jeffrey was awarded an Army Achievement Award and the Army Commendation Medal (awarded to members of the U.S. Army who distinguished themselves by displaying heroism, meritorious achievement or meritorious service). 

Upon Jeffrey's return to civilian life, the injuries that he had sustained while fighting overseas were causing him severe discomfort, and he was unable to move without extreme pain.  Jeffrey reached out to Healing Heroes Network for assistance with receiving Massage Therapy, and was quickly approved after filling out the application.

Massage Therapist & HHN Provider Cathy B. raves about Jeffrey's improvement:

"When he first came to me, he was unable to relax, stated he had limited range of motion with his right shoulder, constant back pain and was unable to walk at length because of the tight muscles of his quadriceps.  After the first session, he had and has maintained full movement with his right arm, states he is able to sleep through the night (something he hadn't done in several years), is able to relax for his massage, and can now walk and stand for periods of time on his leg with no pain!"

Jeffrey states, "The massage sessions already have helped more than I ever thought could happen. I sleep better and am able to function more. I would again like to thank everyone there at Healing Heroes Network for being able to assist me with my journey. Thank you and God Bless."

Healing Heroes Network is proud and honored to assist Heroes like Jeffrey on their 
road to recovery!
