SERVICE DOG PROGRAM
Depending on the source, 20-22 veterans commit suicide per day. Many of these veterans would have benefited from alternative medicine such as certified service dogs. 4 The Fallen is dedicated to providing service trained canines to heroes suffering from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The goal of the Service Dog Program is to empower our heroes to return to an independent and high quality lifestyle.
In partnership with the Patriot Service Dog Foundation, 4 The Fallen assists our heroes with PTSD in receiving trained and certified service dogs at no cost to the heroes. For more information on the Patriot Service Dog Foundation, please go to Patriotic Service Dog Foundation.
The goal of the Advanced Prosthetic Program is to help our heroes who require high impact prosthetic devices. 4 The Fallen ensures there is no financial burden placed on the heroes and ensures they receive a high impact prosthesis at no cost to them. This program ensures our heroes live a more productive and active lifestyle.
Amputees are usually provided with prosthetic devices that are very limited in functionality. These devices are not designed for active lifestyles which is where 4 The Fallen steps in and ensures that the heroes receive them.
4 the Fallen provides America's Heroes with opportunities to compete in competitive and exhibition athletic competitions. These heroes get to showcase their athletic abilities by participating in baseball, cross-fit, golfing, running, and softball events.
Several of these heroes have starred as members of the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball and Football teams, have earned Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals at the Warrior Games sponsored by the Department of Defense as well as the Invictus Games created by Prince Harry. These heroes live the motto life without limbs is limitless.
