Michael Bender, a United States Marine Corp Veteran, served our country bravely. Following his service he suffered from PTSD. In 2018 he was tragically killed, having never received needed treatment.
Scores of men and women who serve our country, either on foreign soil or here at home, suffer daily from PTSD or OTSD(ongoing) without sufficient treatment.
Firefighters, Law Enforcement, EMT’s, Paramedics, First Responders and Military suffer from this daily. It is my goal as a Firefighter/Paramedic to establish a non-profit organization where these brave men and women have resources for counseling, doctors and any other medical treatment they may need.
Bender’s Hope will be an organization where people can seek help and go on trips with others who are going through similar experiences.
So, with everyone’s help we can make Bender’s Hope Foundation a reality and safe place where people know they are not alone. All proceeds will go to help build Bender’s Hope Foundation. We will also be reaching out for sponsors and hosting community fundraisers.
I know in my my heart, this is what Michael Bender HOPED for!!
