Spread Season's Greetings with Last-Minute Giving

Do you have one of those hard-to-buy for people on your gift-giving list? That Uncle who has everything, or the Grandmother who tells you to save your money? Or, are you strapped for cash, but still want to give something meaningful? Consider giving the gift of health!

Donations to Healing Heroes Network can be made in honor of your Uncle or Grandmother. We'll tell your donation honoree all about the Heroes your gift will help. Heroes like Chad from Virginia who's getting new dental work to save his teeth from the grinding caused from his PTSD; or James from Tennessee who will start the new year receiving Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for his PTSD and chronic headaches. This holiday season, your gift can give back!

Here's how!

Another letter of support from one of our Hero families!

SSgt. Jose Pequeno began seeing an HHN Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy provider in April 2010. Jose lost the bottom two lobes of the left-side of his brain, and is known as one of the most severely wounded servicemen to come home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. To this day, Jose is unable to care for himself and requires around-the-clock care. While his outlook appears grim, HHN is determined to give this true American Hero every opportunity to regain as much function as possible.

“The treatment that Jose receives from Healing Heroes Network is fantastic and very loving,” said Nellie Bagley, Jose’s mother. “Both my son and I feel like we are welcomed with open arms with the care they provide. Healing Heroes has made a difference in our lives by their accommodating atmosphere, offers and health care. They are willing to try what others are not, and give us the time to gain progress. Healing Heroes is a wonderful network that not only opens their arms and hearts to us, but veterans of all kinds.”

From War in Mortar-Ville to a New War at Home

"Your life can be over in a second."
"You can die from standing in the wrong place."
"Why does one person make it out of there and another person doesn't?"

These are the thoughts and questions that run through Spc. Brian Taylor's head. After heading to Iraq in 2004 with the Washington State National Guard's 81st Brigade, Brian's life was forever changed. His infantry unit was assigned to provide security for an EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) team. As you can imagine, Brian lived through some terrifying experiences.

"I didn't really realize the scope of what I was doing and where I was, until we started carrying our fellow soldiers out in body bags," recalls Brian. Read More...
