This will be a new series here on The Fight Continues, where I will search the web to find great sites that are directly making an impact on PTSD/TBI with the hope that bringing you this information may help you in some way. Today I wanted to talk about this great site I discovered a few months ago called Healing Heroes. This is simply an amazing non-profit organization that is based in Florida and is comprised of medical professionals that provide services, help combat veterans for free of charge. They provide so many services from offering treatment free of charge, to providing financial support to those needing treatment and may not be able to afford it and so much more.
This amazing network was started by Dr. Spiegel who was a practicing Neurologist for over twenty five years, whom wanted to make a change in how veterans were receiving medical care. At first he tried going to Washington on several occasions to ask for assitance in providing much needed medical care for our veterans, only to walk away more upset and frustrated. Not being discourgaed Dr. Spiegel sat down and spoke with other medical providers and military personnel where he found people also frustrated with veterans medical care. There seemed to be such little funding for quality care for our combat veterans. While speaking with them he soon discovered that they too were frustrated, and wanted to help make a diffrence in other veterans lives. So with this common goal in mind to help veterans whom served our country they formed Healing Heros Network.
HHN sole and primary focus now is to provide therapy and medical assitance to veterans whom fought in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. They currently raise funds through public donations and fundraisers to provide these treatments to veterans at no cost to them. Alot of the services they can provide are not provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. This is an amazing network, and we are so proud to share this great site with you.
