Helen is an active-duty E-3/HN based at the Naval Branch Health Clinic in Jacksonville. Within her role, she is responsible for Operational Readiness of 55 commands and ensures all commands maintain a mission-ready percentage at 90% medically fit. She is well known at work for her positive attitude and is considered to be a go-to Corpsman when something important needs to be accomplished.
At home, Helen was the victim of domestic abuse which was also witnessed by her young daughter. She made the responsible decision to leave her situation, however, with the holidays quickly approaching the added expense of moving in addition to costs associated with her divorce made it challenging to provide a happy Christmas for her child.
To reduce the financial burden Helen was experiencing in her personal life, Wish for Our Heroes provided funds to cover moving expenses. We were also able to treat Helen and her daughter to a Disney vacation so they could form new and happy memories together just in time for Christmas. In total, we were able to give $1,500 thanks to the generosity of our donors.
