LIGHT UP TO LIVE FOUNDATION MISSION
Light Up to Live Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity dedicated to assisting military men and women in active duty and those returning home. Light Up to Live offers monetary support, medical consultation and life-changing assistance to those suffering with conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). This mission to assist Veterans is captured in a documentary called Light Up to Live: The Movie. It reveals insights into the lives of American Veterans who struggle with numerous battlefield injuries, the drug-free options they can utilize and their journey to regain hope and health.
Where it Started: Light Up to Live: The Movie
The Light Up to Live Foundation began after Randell Reed, the founder, worked with RedLux Productions to create a documentary about five military men and their individual paths traveled as they sought recovery through the power of light, hope and determination.
Co-Founder, Light Up To Live Foundation
For over three decades, Randall Reed has been a successful entrepreneur in the automotive, aviation, real estate and medical industry. He is the CEO of Reed Enterprises, a billion-dollar entity that encompasses one of the third largest, award-winning, independent automotive dealership sales organization, as well as a number of other holdings. Randall is part of a military family and believes in doing all we can to support our Veterans. The family created Light Up to Live Foundation after working with Veterans who were returning home from active duty. He learned of the great need for rehabilitation services to help support those returning with issues, from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to traumatic brain injury (TBI). He is an advocate of polychromatic light therapy medical devices and committed to sharing this revolutionary, drug-free therapeutic product with the world.
Co-Founder, Light Up To Live Foundation
As a military mother, Sherry has a passion for assisting the needs of our military forces both home and abroad. Together, with Randall, they formed the Light Up To Live Foundation after seeing the effects of war on Veterans in a documentary. It was evident that help was needed for members of the military who were returning home and silently suffering with PTSD, TBI, anxiety, depression and other medical issues. Creating therapeutic support options was a natural path. As a certified trainer and natural food enthusiast for over 20 years, Sherry understands the strength of the human body. After a stroke, she tried numerous pharmaceutical recommendations to aid in her recovery. It was the power of the InLight Medical system, a polychromatic light therapy device that helped her find a clearer path to pain relief and recovery. Through the foundation, the family hopes to help others in their journey.
