For veterans like Tim Low – who served in the No Slack battalion with the movie's director – returning home with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), a Spinal Cord Injury or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), can be the start of a debilitating spiral downward. Paralyzed Veterans is uniquely positioned to help them, as well as their family and caregivers, to find the support and help they need.
An Inside Look: Tim Low's Story and Struggle with TBI
While on patrol near the Pakistan border, a 14 year-old girl approached Tim Low and detonated the explosives she wore beneath her brightly colored burka. He still remembers her vividly. It's like time slowed to a crawl.
The next seven years, as Tim describes them, were "dark days." He struggled with his traumatic brain injury (TBI) and severe depression. Finally, a staffer at the Department of Veterans Affairs said "Go see Paralyzed Veterans of America. They'll take care of you." Not only did Paralyzed Veterans help Tim get the resources he desperately needed, they helped Tim's father, a Vietnam veteran, finally get his claim approved as well.
At Paralyzed Veterans of America, we believe that love and support for paralyzed veterans – and all veterans – should be followed up with action. We advocate for benefits and resources. We provide rehabilitation services with the goal of independence. And we deliver systems of support to foster pride and dignity for everyone who has served.
Your donation to Paralyzed Veterans of America today will help more veterans like Tim receive the support they need to heal and rebuild their lives.
