We can’t thank Wounded Warriors Family Support enough.
Our family has been through a lot. My husband, John, was hurt in Afghanistan. He received two Purple Hearts that tour. The rehabilitation, both physical and mental, was tough and long. Severe PTSD has been a part of our lives for a very long time, and of course, still creeps in here and there.
In the spring of this year, he had a medical emergency that almost cost him his life. The recovery was 5 months long. We both felt tossed back into trauma. Him, with his life and the mental battle he was facing, and me, going right back into caretaker mode especially since he was unable to lift anything over 10 lbs. This time around, however, we have 4 kids in the fight with us, and one is a baby. As anyone can imagine, this year took a hard toll on our family.
In steps Wounded Warriors Family Support. We were unbelievably blown away by the support we felt. Not only were we sent grocery money to help with meals while I was taking care of John, a cleaning service was also provided to alleviate some of the burden I felt. This really got us through the recovery from his last surgery.
Next, we were given a trip to Orlando. This was the best most healing time we could have ever asked for as a family. It re-centered us as a family and we are so grateful for this opportunity. We have seen God work in some pretty amazing ways in our lives, and this is pretty close to the top.
Thank you so much to everyone that was a part of this journey with us.
We are forever grateful.
The Gressock Family ❤️
