A Hero's Story

Healing Heroes Network is proud to provide financial assistance for treatment and therapy services to post 9/11 combat injured service members.  Read here about active duty hero Bret G...  

After 5 tours deployed to Afghanistan and 1 to Iraq left him suffering from PTSD, Bret reached out to Healing Heroes Network for help in obtaining and Alpha-Stim Unit.  This device uses cranial electrotherapy stimulation to reduce the symptoms of PTSD such as anxiety, insomnia and depression.

After applying for financial assistance through Healing Heroes Network, Bret was approved and soon received his very own Alpha Stim Unit to use at home to help ease his suffering.   

Here's what Bret had to say:

"I was suffering from severe anxiety and PTSD from multiple deployments.  The clinic on my base utilized 3 loaner Alpha-Stim devices which work wonders for patients with these conditions but could only provide treatment in office (I went in every chance I could get for 20 minute treatments).  TRICARE does not cover the Alpha-Stim despite years of proven effectiveness for sufferers of PTSD (with no drug side effects), so the doctors could write a prescription of individual use but the full cost was borne by the user (very expensive).  Healing Heroes Network came to my rescue and bought me an Alpha-Stim which I now use regularly at home.  I will now be able to address my symptoms without the aid of excessive medications and the uncomfortable side effects.  I cannot express enough how much I appreciate the help and assistance of Healing Heroes Network!  Thank you!!!!"

Healing Heroes Network is proud and honored to assist Heroes like Bret in finding hope and healing after serving our great nation!

Remembering 9/11

If someone were to ask you, "Where were you on the morning of September 10, 2001?", you would have no recollection at all.  If someone were to ask you, "Where were you on the morning of September 11, 2001?", you would not hesitate to reply.  It is a day we will never forget, one that is etched into our history forever.  It was 14 long years ago, but the pain is still fresh, the memory of the horror we all felt as Americans still so vivid.

As we take time to reflect on the 14th Anniversary of this day and the events that led to the tragic loss of so many American lives, let us come together to grieve, to remember, and to express our gratitude to those who demonstrated what it is to be a hero, and to pledge ourselves to live in honor of their bravery.  

It is because of this day that Healing Heroes Network was created, to honor the service and sacrifice of the brave men and women who freely chose to face the enemy and defend our nation.  At Healing Heroes Network, WE WILL NEVER FORGET, and we will always be there to help our heroes as they return home to us.  

Reflect with us today.  Remember the fallen heroes of 9/11/01, and show your support, every day, for the heroes still fighting the good fight.

For Our Troops,

Happy Wednesday from Healing Heroes Network!   We hope everyone had a great, long Labor Day weekend, and that you are all enjoying your short work week!   

Wednesday falls smack dab in the middle of the week... some call it "Hump Day", and we all can relate to that feeling of restlessness that accompanies most Wednesday's throughout the long stretch of our hectic schedules. 

Introducing... #WarriorWednesday

#WarriorWednesday means many things to many different people and organizations.  But to Healing Heroes Network, it means taking an opportunity to remind ourselves that we have WARRIORS fighting for our country EVERY day.

We want to hear about the special Warriors in YOUR life!  Every Wednesday, we encourage you to send us an email telling us all about the loved one in your life who has served in the armed forces, is currently serving, or sacrificed their lives in service to our country.  Please send all emails to:

Thank you so much for supporting our nation's Warriors, on Wednesday and EVERY day!

#TipTuesday - Tips to make every Tuesday, #TroopTuesday !

Here at Healing Heroes Network, everyday is a day to show gratitude and support for our nation's military heroes!  While some of you may share in that gratitude deep down, it may be hard to show your support...  You might not know just how to show your thanks...

We want to help you do just that by sharing some tips with you today on #TipTuesday!

Showing your support it easy, and doesn't have to cost a dime:

- When you see a person in military uniform, simply say "Thank you for your service."

- Send cards and notes to hospitalized veterans and those living in Veteran’s homes

- Ask your elected officials at all levels to recognize our military

- Know a hero stationed overseas?  Distribute a care package list through your neighborhood and let everyone contribute something, include notes from everyone, and send it to them

- Join the RED Friday movement by wearing RED every Friday to:
Remember Everyone Deployed  

- Visit military memorials or cemeteries; place flags or flowers on the graves of fallen heroes

- Fly the American Flag at your house, on your car, or at your place of business

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,

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:

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!

For the Troops,
