THANKS to all of our donors for your support over the years!
Jackie Rummage of Travel Plus of North Carolina
Resurrecting Lives Foundation would like to thank Jackie Rummage of Travel Plus of North Carolina for her skillful assistance in arranging transportation and lodging for our participants of the Albert Einstein TBI study in New York. It was a challenge coordinating the travel for our participants who were coming from different cities and states. The additional challenge was arranging for their transportation to and from the medical center and coordinating schedules with our veterans coming in from different areas. Thanks so much for your persistence and hard work to make our Veterans’ travel for this study uncomplicated.

Central Ohio American Charities (COAC)
COAC has been a strong supporter of the Resurrecting Lives each year through their annual clay shoot fundraiser. This year they presented the Foundation with a check for $20,000 as a result of this fundraiser. Their organization has been one of our strongest supporters to assist with the support of our veterans. Thanks for your gracious support over the years!
An innovative idea turned into a very prosperous donation for our vets. Members of UBS Mid Ohio Complex decided to hold a yard sale and ask for donations from their employees with the proceeds going to Resurrecting Lives Foundation. With a lot of work and organization, their event held on a rainy Saturday on July 27 resulted in total proceeds of almost $11,000 to Resurrecting Lives. This was amazing event from such simple idea that resulted in so much support for our veterans. Thanks again for everyone who made this day such a success!
AMVETS Post 26, Mansfield, Ohio
Each year the AMVETS Post 26 holds a Rock & Roll Celebration for Ohio’s Wounded Heroes. This past year they raised almost $18,000 to support our veterans with TBI. Below you can see Resurrecting Lives Foundation board members receiving the initial check for $14,900 from Mansfield AMVETS Post 26 on May 22nd. This was the initial proceeds from the “Rock and Roll Festival for Ohio’s Wounded Heroes” held on May 11, 2013. The final total came in a close to $18,000. This Post has been very supportive of our Foundation both financially and in their support of local vets with TBI. The Foundation extends our heartfelt thanks to such an energetic group who each year surpasses their goal for supporting our veterans. See more of the event at our Recent News section and videos on our YouTube site.

Stan Crader, Novelist
Stan Crader, a novelist without equal, except for possibly Samuel Clemens, has agreed to donate the net proceeds from sales of his three novels – The Bridge, The Longest Year and The Paperboy, to The Resurrecting Lives Foundation. Stan and his wife Debbie live in Southern Missouri where Stan was raised and inspired to spin his tales of rural America of the 50’s and 60’s. Debbie says the stories are based on his life, a claim that Stan vehemently denies. And readers of his books will understand his denial. But the two of them agree on the need to support America’s warriors and we are honored to be the recipients of Stan and Debbie’s talent and generosity. Stan’s books are Christian fiction and suitable for all ages. They’re Kindle ready, available through all major books stores or directly from Stan at www.stancrader.com. Get your copy now and enjoy a nostalgic trip down memory lane while helping our heroes. To learn more about his books, you can view this brochure about his works.

Chris and Lucy Destefano, first civilian donors to the foundation
The Resurrecting Lives Foundation salutes Chris and Lucy Destefano from New Jersey, who donated generously to our foundation in 2011 by a Random Act of Patriotism. Dr. Gordon met Chris on a flight to Colorado, explained our Foundation and its mission to assist our OIF/OEF Veterans with TBI, and Chris and Lucy became our FIRST civilian donors to the cause. With their funds we were able to travel to Congress with 4 heroes from these conflicts and present our telemedicine program which would provide services for 32,000 Veterans with TBI/year for the next two years.
