SWVF Awards $2,500 Veteran Suicide Grant
to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy of Arizona

The Southwest Veterans Foundation awarded a $2,500 Veteran Suicide Prevention Grant to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) of Arizona during its recent Maggianos luncheon. Modern Woodmen of America Foundation provided the funds for this grant.

Lori Klauber of HBOT of Arizona said, “This grant will be used to treat a Marine Veteran who was previously approved for treatment at another facility, but it ran out of funding before the treatment could begin. This grant will provide critically needed treatment for this Veteran.

Pat McNeil, President of the SWVF Board of Directors thanked “…all those whose generosity made this grant possible. This brings our total Veteran Suicide Grants to $52,200, and we have an additional $22,000 reserved for additional grants.” These grants are critical to treating and saving Veterans since the Veterans Administration will not fund HBOT and most insurance companies do not cover it.

The SWVF Veteran Suicide Prevention Program (VSPP) established an initial goal to raise $100,000 to fight this national epidemic. To date they have raised $73,998. If you would like to support SWVF’s Veteran Suicide Prevention Program, you can donate at https://swvcc.org/savealife/.

On behalf of the Veterans and their families who will benefit from your generosity we thank you.

We also want to thank our corporate sponsor of the VSPP—Devoted Health Plans.
