As an Air Force Veteran, I am honored and privileged to be a part of the inaugural 2019 Home Base Marathon Team representing Massachusetts General Hospital in this year's 123rd Boston Marathon. Many thanks to those who made this all happen. This is a great team that has been assembled and I look forward to training with each of them in the weeks and months ahead as we strive to make a difference together.
Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Program, is dedicated to healing the invisible wounds for Veterans, Service Members and their Families through world-class clinical care, wellness, education and research. As a National Center of Excellence, Home Base operates the first and largest private-sector clinic in the nation devoted to healing invisible wounds such as post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, anxiety, depression, co-occurring substance use disorder, military sexual trauma, family relationship challenges and other issues associated with service. Since inception, Home Base has served more than 15,000 Veterans and family members with care and support, trained more than 55,000 clinicians, educators and community members nationally and remains at the forefront of discovering new treatments– ensuring a brighter future for the 21st century warrior and military family.
For those of you that support the team through donations, your generosity will have an immediate impact-helping our Veteran's, Service Member's and their Families receive treatment they need to overcome the invisible wounds of war. If you look at the infographic I have posted on my webpage, you will be able to see how your donation plays into the collective fundraising in helping to make a difference in the lives of so many.
I sincerely thank you ahead of time for your donations, any amount helps. Together we can achieve or even surpass my fundraising goal. You will hear from me again once I have completed the 123rd Boston Marathon.
With gratitude and appreciation for your support
