Robert, a car donation recipient from Tennessee, is a disabled veteran, who served our country valiantly in 1990. He fought in the Gulf War, also known as Desert Storm. Unfortunately, he was involved in the collision of a patriot and scud missile, which created an after shock that blew him back over 60 feet. As a result, Robert sustained many injuries; including breaking his back and neck in 7 different places.
Doctors told Robert he was not expected to walk again. However, after much determination and extensive physical therapy, Robert managed to walk again and lead a functioning life. Still, the injuries he recovered from proved to make his every day life much more difficult. He also did not have a reliable form of transportation, which made caring for himself and his 4 children, ages 6 to 14, a large obstacle.
On May 23rd, 2014; Robert became a car donation recipient when 1-800-Charity Cars was able to provide his family with a 2009 Honda Odyssey. Robert was elated with his gift and the fact that it would allow him to take his children to necessary appointments, grocery shopping, and other important tasks without having to rely on help from family and friends. Robert is thankful for the second chance he has been given and is grateful to all the people involved in making his donation possible.
