In her words: “I had been such an extrovert; I loved sports and loved life. Then the accident and my life changed overnight, and so did I. The chronic pain forced me to isolate. I became a hermit. I was hooked on meds. Depression became rampant. And yes, I thought heavily about suicide.”
After 14 grueling surgeries over four years, Heather and her doctors made the tough decision to amputate her leg. Her mom, Vicky Carter, quit her job to be at her daughter’s side and took on the role of caretaker and advocate during Heather’s rehabilitation process. They stayed at Fisher House for more than a year.
Describing her time at Fisher House, Vicky said “In your darkest hours, when you think you have nowhere to turn, Fisher House offers a glimmer of hope. It was like a hand reaching down and pulling you up. You knew it was going to be okay.”
You can help military and veterans families feel that glimmer of hope when they need it most, at a time of a medical crisis. Watch the moving video below, and watch how family, friends and Fisher House supported Air Force veteran, Heather Carter.
