“I never thought that I would be at risk of losing everything that I’ve worked so hard for. The funds that I’ve requested will give me the ability to get my house out of foreclosure and allow me to keep my vehicle, amongst other things. The amount requested is what it will take to get me out of the hole I’m currently in.”
Mike* is a U.S. Marine Corps Veteran. He and his mother were involved in a tragic accident when an 18-wheeler tractor trailer lost control while speeding on an overpass, jack-knifed, and hit their vehicle head-on. Since they were on an overpass, Mike and his mother expected their car to fly off the bridge, but the guardrail prevented the car from falling over. However, they both sustained severe injuries from the accident. Furthermore, when Mike had retired from the military, he had been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The accident made his PTSD worse, requiring even more medical treatment. The Milestone Foundation supported Mike and his mother so they could pay their bills, keep their home and vehicle, and get through this tough time together.
