LOS ANGELES, Dec. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Just weeks after touring the country to advocate for Veterans' medical rights, Army Vet and triple-amputee Jose Martinez is once again facing a medical struggle after a horrific car wreck, and charity organization Cheers to Goodness is asking the public to help support Jose's road to recovery.
"Jose is one of the bravest, most positive individuals we have had the pleasure to work with," shared Garyn Angel, founder of Cheers to Goodness. "He's done so much to rally for the rights of our citizens and our Veterans, but now it's time for us to rally around him as he faces yet another setback in his incredible and inspiring journey."
Martinez lost both of his legs and his right arm in 2012 after stepping on an IED in Afghanistan, where he was deployed with the United States Army. After a long recovery period and a struggle with pain pill addiction, he emerged as an advocate for Veterans' right to choose their own path for medical treatment while recovering from war trauma.
Jose broke his only arm, which resulted in surgery to repair, while his wife sustained multiple injuries including a fractured foot. Cheers to Goodness has donated $2,500 toward Martinez's medical costs, and has arranged an Indiegogo campaign in hopes that others inspired by his journey may be able to donate as well.
