March is Brain Injury Awareness Month and in this months K9 for Warriors spotlight we got a little update on Adam, who suffered a traumatic brain injury, and Blaze.
When the armored vehicle Adam was riding on hit an IED, the explosion threw him several yards, knocking him unconscious. It’s incredible he survived.
But the Traumatic Brain Injury he suffered nearly ruined his short-term memory, leading to severe frustration and anger. He also now suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, causing him crippling anxiety.
Thanks to support from people like you, K9s For Warriors has a program to help veterans like Adam. Your gift of $50, $100 or even $200 today will help pair a warrior with a service dog — and save both their lives.
“K9s is by far the best program I’ve been a part of that helps veterans.”
— Adam, Army veteran
Adam says the moment he stepped onto Camp K9 to meet Blaze, everything got better.
“He makes me stop and just be in the moment,” Adam says. “I can go places now that I would never go before.”
It’s because of people like you that warriors like Adam are able to reclaim their lives. It’s the least we can do to honor their service and sacrifice. In honor of National Brain Injury Awareness month, please give a gift to help improve — and even save — the life of a warrior like Adam. Thank you.
