Healing Heroes Network, a Florida-based 501(c)(3) 26-3714861 non-profit organization, is proud to serve the brave men and women of the military and their families.
Healing Heroes Network is committed to healing America's Heroes by providing financial assistance for quality care to military personnel injured in the line of duty in Iraq or Afghanistan since 9/11/01.
Through communication, education, and community outreach, Healing Heroes Network strives to bring awareness of the often untreated injuries sustained in war and the desperate need for our services.
With a nationwide network of professionals willing to provide a wide array of therapies and services, and funding from generous donors, Healing Heroes Network aids these brave wounded warriors in receiving much needed therapies. While the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs is diligent in providing treatments to our injured military, the scope of covered services can be limited, delayed, or unavailable. Healing Heroes Network fills in the gaps for these desperately needed services and aids those who sacrifice for our freedoms.
Since its establishment in 2008, Healing Heroes Network has raised funds to serve, support, and increase awareness, all aimed at healing our Heroes' injuries.
Wounded veterans of the present War on Terrorism struggle every day to overcome life-changing sacrifices like cognitive, emotional, and physical disabilities. The goal of Healing Heroes Network is to help our injured heroes get back to more productive, healthy lives that they enjoyed before being deployed. Healing Heroes Network is a testament to the warmth, gratitude, and devotion Americans hold for our Heroes who do so much for all of us every day.
The People We Help
Getting injured during battle isn't a new concept, but with advancing technology, more and more soldiers are surviving but suffering from injuries that go beyond what we can see or have experienced before. Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are occurring on an exponential level.
A 2011 report by the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center found that of Active Duty US Armed Forces,
- more than 20% said their health was worse now than before deployment
- more than 10% reported having more than 2 symptoms of PTSD
- 27% reported symptoms of depression.
These statistics only include "self-reported" assessments. Many more of our military go undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or find that treatments through the overwhelmed VA Benefits System are often delayed or inaccessible.
When we work together, the results are clear. Healing Heroes Network has funded over 1,300 treatments in just four years. Healing Heroes Network has been able to provide financial assistance for treatments like Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Massage and Chiropractic Therapies, Acupuncture, Mental Health Counseling, and so many others. We have helped men, women, and families find the will and tools to heal.
Thanks to the work of Healing Heroes Network and our supporters, our Heroes from the battlefield can come home and continue being Heroes to their families and communities.
