Foundation Helps Veteran Return Home after Suffering from a Stroke

Ben Cain Sr., a Navy Veteran who served in Vietnam, suffered a stroke while flying from Los Angeles to Baltimore for a family reunion back on July 15. After learning the required ambulance to get Ben Sr. home safely would cost $10,000, the family didn’t know how they would foot the bill, so they reached out to the Foundation, who happily agreed to cover transportation costs through our H.O.P.E. Initiative!
