Making Strides Against Breast Cancer – Oct. 31

Posted on: August 2nd, 2015 by brent

Join Us !

Hi, we’re Cat Country 987 – Team “Cat-A-Tude”

Event: Making Strides of Pensacola on Saturday, October 31, 2015

Support Cat Country 987 – Team “Cat-A-Tude”

Why We’re Putting On Our Pink Bras and Making Strides

Welcome to our Team Page! Almost everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way, so we’ve decided to make a difference by putting on our pink bras and raising money to walk in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.

Today 1 out of every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for help and support. The donations our team raises will enable investment in groundbreaking breast cancer research, free information and services for women diagnosed with the disease, and access to mammograms for women who need them. Our donations will help more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors celebrate another birthday this year!

Why We Support the American Cancer Society

Saving lives from breast cancer starts one team, one walker, and one dollar at a time. We know that the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end breast cancer. We know that supporting them will ensure that if you need someone to talk to anytime of the day or night, they’ll be there. If your friend is losing her hair from chemo, your mother needs a ride to treatment, or a loved one needs a place to stay when treatment is far from home, they will be there to help.

Join us and “Put On Your Pink Bra”. Together we will walk for a world without breast cancer.

Help the Daniel Palmer Home

Posted on: February 16th, 2015 by brent

Corporal Daniel Palmer is a lifelong resident of Milton, Florida in Santa Rosa County. He came home in 2012 severely injured. Daniel is married to Becky and they have two children, Cameron and Vanessa Faith. Daniel was a member of the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, U.S. Marine Corps.

Daniel enlisted in the Marine Corps in June 2008. He deployed to Marjah, Afghanistan in December 2009 as a member of the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment. On March 20, 2010 Daniel was wounded while patrolling in Marjah, Afghanistan. He stepped on an IED, improvised explosive device, causing the loss of his right foot and a portion of his lower leg. He is being treated for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other medical issues.

After Daniel’s injury, he was sent to a medical facility in Germany where he was treated for a week. From there he went to National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland for almost a month. Daniel was then transferred to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where he received physical therapy treatment for about nine months.

After his treatment in Washington, Daniel was stationed at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, N.C. for two years. There he went through the military medical board process and was medically retired in August of 2012 with 90% disability.

Daniel and his family returned home on July 27, 2012, to a thunderous welcome-home celebration at Pensacola International Airport. Hundreds of well-wishers were in attendance. Gulf Coast Veterans In Need organized this homecoming and has worked since to support the Palmer Family’s transition to civilian life.

The Santa Rosa County Veterans Memorial Foundation and the Gulf Coast Veterans in Need groups have been diligently working to build a new home for this local hero and his family. With a January groundbreaking in Chumuckla, Florida, it is expected that the home will be completed by summer 2015.

Additional help is needed. Blackie Black, Bagdad Construction, is the home builder who is generously donating his time and leadership for this project. For information on building material donations or volunteering, please call Blackie at (850) 572-8563.

For cash contributions to Gulf Coast Veterans in Need, you can donate on-line at http://gulfcoastveterans.org/donate/ or by mailing a check to: Gulf Coast Veterans in Need, Inc., Post Office Box 13245, Pensacola, Florida 32591.
