We are so excited to share updates for our Heroes on this Veterans Day

Leon & Carson

Leon’s life has improved tremendously since being honored to receive Guardian Angel, Carson.  He is able to sleep without interruption of flashbacks and bad dreams, speak to people in public places and live a “normal” life without the need for medication.  Carson has become a family member, well-received by family, friends, and the public at all times.  He is definitely a God-send thanks to the support of Carson Higgins’ family and Armstrong Healing Heroes!

Randy & Dennis

Since having Dennis, Randy’s symptoms of PTSD have greatly decreased.  He is now able to manage his feelings and feels more in control of his life.  Randy says his biggest accomplishment is that he is now able to go to places- the grocery store, Farmer’s market, etc.  Prior to Dennis, Randy would only go very late at night or in the early morning, but now he is able to go around 7:30-8a and says “it’s so nice to be out like a normal person.”

Lisa & Yogi

Yogi has greatly improved Lisa’s life.  He has allowed her to be able to find her independence.  Lisa has had a significant decrease in her symptoms as well, including having zero suicidal thoughts!  When Lisa is out in public, she no longer avoids people but will have conversations with others.  Lisa has also been able to travel thanks to having Yogi by her side!  She’s been to: San Diego, has taken the family to Orlando, went to concert in California, to several minor league baseball games, attended the Pittsburgh and Dayton Mutt Struts and a few months ago Lisa moved into the home she had always wanted!!

Sami & Angel

Sami has been able to lose about 70lbs since having Angel.  She also got married and is a once again enjoying things, thanks to having Angel in her life!!
