It’s time to register for the Light Up To Live charity events. Choose from three events all with one mission – helping to light the path to hope for Veterans. All events help fund resources for Veterans recovering from Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, pain and depression.

The proceeds raised go toward the funding of polychromatic LED light therapy systems used in physical therapy to increase blood circulation and reduce pain. Additionally, funds will provide specially trained service dogs specifically for use by Veterans living with PTS, TBI and physical injuries to enhance their daily adaptive living needs.

Veteran Michelle Rivera made an appearance on Fox 5 in San Diego with Patriotic Service Dogs Gentle Ben and Jackel. During the program she represented women veterans, minority veterans, combat veterans and veterans with PTS. Michelle says she is aiming to turn post-traumatic stress into post-traumatic growth.
