This holiday season will be extra special for Army Private First Class Vicente Ramirez; it will be the first one he celebrates in his new specially adapted custom home. In the years since his injury, Vicente would rush through family events because he had to wear his prosthetic for long periods of time, causing him much pain and frustration. In his new HFOT home, Vicente can access every room in his wheelchair, enabling him to rest his leg more frequently. Most importantly, Vicente is able to fully enjoy raising his two young sons, Ison and Cade.
“It means the world to me to be able to spend the holidays with my sons in my new home this year. I will be able to entirely focus my attention on them, and not have to worry about my mobility,” says Vicente.
Your year-end contribution is the reason Veterans like Vicente will receive their forever homes in 2020. Your gift provides more than a barrier-free environment; it gives Veterans a place to create a lifetime of memories.
