Mission Ready! Are YOU READY to Be a "Champion for Military Families!"
This training year has been challenging with the heat, but the cool days of fall have brought speed and the heat of the summer has built endurance. On Oct 28th at the blast of the M2A1 Howitzer at 7:55 a.m., I'll be on mission to “charge the district, beat the bridge and take the Iwo” along with 23000 plus runners.
Each time I meet someone that shares their story of actual experience of Fisher House’s free “Home Away from Home” I am motivated even more to I put on my yellow hat and jersey to go for a run. During that run I hope for just 1 person to ask me about my shirt in hopes it gathers more exposure for Fisher House and the incredible things they do for our Military families.
There are currently 76 Fisher Houses located on 24 military installations and 32 VA medical centers. Thanks to your support situations, like Sr. Airman Heather Carter's story below, are worry free of where to stay and where to heal.Thank you for your support and prayers! I am very grateful for you support!
2 Tim 1:7 “For God did not give me the spirit of fear, but love and power and a sound mind.”
Getting a phone call that a loved one is in the hospital is anyone’s worst nightmare. When Vicky and John Carter got the call that their daughter, Senior Airman Heather Carter, had been seriously injured, they found relief in knowing she would be receiving excellent medical treatment at a military hospital, but were distraught to be hundreds of miles away from her.
Heather had endured 14 surgeries before the decision was finally made to amputate her badly injured leg, at which time, Vicky quit her job to be by her daughter’s side They stayed at Fisher House. Being at the house allowed Vicky to advocate for Heather while being comforted by the other families staying at Fisher House. “In your darkest hours, when you think you have nowhere to turn,” Vicky says, “Fisher House offers a glimmer of hope. It was like a hand reaching down and pulling you up. You knew it was going to be OK.”
You can help me make sure military and veterans’ families feel that glimmer of hope when they need it most by supporting my fundraising campaign for Fisher House Foundation today.
Your prayer support is precious to me, thank you. If you are able, a small donation to help build new homes and maintain current ones would be an added blessing. Any donation to Fisher House in support of my campaign will help - it all adds up! I truly appreciate your support. Thank you.
