A New Start: Sgt. Jonathan Maura

Saying want to help veterans is one thing, but it means nothing without backing it up with action. Healing Heroes Network knows this and works hard to provide financial assistance and to connect our Heroes with Providers. After fighting for our country and sacrificing so much, we need to do what we can to ensure our troops have the resources to live a quality life. 

Sgt. Jonathan Maura in what he describes as his "lil' hole."
Which is why we're happy to help people like Sgt. Jonathan Maura. Jonathan had a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and was having difficulties finding treatment. Jonathan was adamant about finding a non-medicinal means to help his condition. So he turned to Healing Heroes Network.

We matched Jonathan up with Dr. Kevin Hurdelbrink for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) treatments.
HBOT was the perfect match for Jonathan who didn't want to use medicinal means to treat his TBI. While HBOT isn't officially designated for treating TBI, it is often prescribed off-label. While studies haven't yet proven conclusion, there are many who say HBOT is highly effective in treating their TBI symptoms. Jonathan among them.

"I have noticed great improvements with my mental awareness, speech, and overall well-being," Jonathan said. 

Now Jonathan is able to continue on with his life. He recently secured a new job and is looking forward to the new beginning. We are all very excited that we were able to help Jonathan on his road to recovery, and we want to wish him good luck in his new ventures!
