Money raised from this campaign goes directly to Veterans with PTSD and helps pay for their service animals. Many Veterans suffer from PTSD and on average 22 Veterans commit suicide a day due the implications.
A few years back, our friend committed suicide. He was in his 20's and an Army Combat Veteran. He left behind two children and two dogs. He was the life of the party; always the loudest but always a great friend. He was the kind of person that would help you without questions and at a drop of a hat.
The night leading up to the event, he called many people, but to no avail. Can you imagine that if just one person answered his phone call? Things may have been different. This reigns true in many other cases, as well. Maybe one person could have made a difference in his life, and in so many other lives that have been lost to this silent killer.
PTSD effects many, but remains a silent killer for most will not speak about it if they are suffering from it. Because of this, it is hard to see signs of suicide, and it often happens with a shock to the families. For The Fighters is a nonprofit dedicated to changing the statistics and helping those whom suffer from PTSD. We offer grants for service animals, group support, peer to peer support, and family support. We don't want this silent killer to be forgotten and want to spread awareness so that others may be cognitive and never feel alone! Sometimes it just takes one person to change a stigma.
