10th Annual Veterans Appreciation Day
4455 Porter Rd., Niagara Falls, NY 14305
In 2014, Dr. Kristin Jacobsen initially founded Hands Healing Heroes to address the health needs of Veterans during the VA crisis when our service men and women were waiting weeks to months for much needed treatment. She wanted to do what she could to help the situation and made a commitment to provide complimentary chiropractic care for anyone who was wounded or injured during combat for as long as they need care, and as long as she is in practice.
Within a month, a group of Dr. Jacobsen’s patients caught the patriotic fervor, and together, they increased the organization’s ability to support our local Veterans, as well as those still in active duty. Every year since, they have celebrated our Veterans with the Annual Veterans Appreciation Day each September with a party offering free meals to Veterans and their immediate families. Veterans are offered haircuts, massages, award searches….all for FREE as a show of our sincere appreciation for their service to our great country. It is our way of stepping up to demonstrate gratitude in action for their service, sacrifice and honor.
As long as I am blessed to stand behind Family Chiropractic, any veteran injured in combat while in active duty will receive their care on me. I do not want their insurance. I do not want their copay. If I have to open extra hours on Saturdays, that sacrifice is nothing in comparison to those each of our heroes has made, and one I feel honored to make.
