We are thrilled to share the wonderful news that our First There 4 Wellness (FT4-W) fundraising campaign for Jack Fanning, the dedicated Air Force Special Operations Combat Controller that was severely injured during training, has been successfully completed. Thanks to the generosity and support of our community, we have raised $53,324 in individual donations to address Jack's urgent needs.
Early in our efforts, an anonymous donor stepped forward to match the individual donations up to $50,000. This resulted in more than $100,000 raised through our FT4-W program in support of Jack's urgent needs.
As many of you know, Jack has led an extraordinary life of service and resilience, marked by his commitment to helping other veterans through his non-profit, BrothersKeepers (BK). Despite facing a traumatic injury that left him as an incomplete quadriplegic, Jack's determination to make a positive impact has not wavered.
The funds raised through our FT4-W program will assist us in meeting Jack's urgent needs, particularly acquiring the specialized bed technology that has proven to be crucial for his recovery. This bed played a significant role during his hospital stay after surgery on the wound, facilitating faster healing and providing comfort that significantly improves Jack's quality of life.
Jack's journey has been challenging, with the effects of his spinal cord injury profoundly impacting his day-to-day life. Living with constant pain and limited mobility has taken a toll on his mental health. With your support, we are now able to alleviate some of these challenges and enhance Jack's overall well-being.
We want to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who contributed to this cause. Your generosity has made a meaningful difference in Jack's life, and we are excited about the positive impact it will have on his ongoing recovery and quality of life.
Once again, thank you for your support and compassion.
