America's Mighty Warriors
Our troops are coming home after multiple deployments with emotional and physical needs. America's Mighty Warriors recognizes they are not receiving the best care in a timely manner. We are dedicated to providing therapies that heal. We provide funding for those diagnosed with TBI to receive Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. We are also working with other providers whose therapies are helping with PTSD. We also host retreats for our wounded warriors and their families to provide recreation and resiliency.
As our troops continue the fight on multiple fronts, many are experiencing Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and associated Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from combat-related blasts. More than 750,000 of our troops and families are affected and sadly, many are not getting access to the treatment they need to heal the actual brain injury! Instead, symptoms are being addressed with medication while source of the problem goes untreated. The result, our troops are on medication for depression, anxiety, concentration, sleeplessness and pain.
Individuals and families are being torn apart. Treatments are available to treat the brain injury but they are not prescribed by military doctors because they are not covered by insurance!
America’s Mighty Warriors is collaborating with HBOT treatment centers around the country, HBOT stands for hyperbaric oxygen treatment. This evidence-based protocol for oxygen treatment that has been helping vets heal but it is difficult to access and is not covered by insurance.
America’s Mighty Warriors is raising awareness and money to get our warriors access to this beneficial treatment and help our troops, vets and their families get their lives back after Traumatic Brain Injury.

Hyperbaric Health and Wellness Foundation (Hailey, ID)
An Idaho based non-profit, the Hyperbaric Health & Wellness Foundation (HHWF) is committed to assisting veterans suffering from conditions related to their military service by providing access to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). These conditions may include, but are not limited to, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and polytrauma (physical damage to multiple body parts and/or organ systems).
HBOT provides 100% pure, medical-grade oxygen to its recipient while within a safe, monitored environment of heightened atmospheric pressure. With a well-documented track record of effectiveness, it aids in recovery, overall wellness, and an improved quality of life. HBOT is a prescribed treatment approved by the FDA and AMA for a broad array of conditions. Unfortunately, since HBOT has not yet received unanimous VA approval for all conditions, including TBI and PTSD, those seeking relief must pay out of their own pocket. This can range from $200 – $1000 for each 90-minute session. With a typical program of 40 sessions, this cost adds up rapidly, totaling anywhere from $8000 – $40,000. The HHWF recognizes this overwhelming financial burden as a major obstacle for most veterans who simply want relief from their symptoms so seeks to neutralize it by covering the treatment costs.
Through generous donations and grants, the Hyperbaric Health & Wellness Foundation enables veterans nationwide to access a comprehensive treatment protocol of 40 HBOT sessions over a 20-day period. A unique resource, the foundation has served over 72 veterans with over 2800 treatments since 2018. We facilitate the journey to recovery with open arms, respect, and compassion.
