ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff’s story is unique and inspiring and he is sharing it with the public in an effort to raise awareness and support for injured veterans. Woodruff was injured in 2006 while covering the war in Iraq and nearly lost his life after an improvised explosive device struck a tank he was in. Part of his skull was removed due to brain swelling, and the TV correspondent was in a medically induced coma for a month.
Against all odds, Bob Woodruff not only survived his injuries but has experienced a remarkable recovery. With his family’s support Woodruff is now working again to publicize traumatic brain injuries and other impairments that many disabled veterans have after returning from war.
Bob and his wife, Lee, have started a foundation to help injured service members and their families. The Bob Woodruff Foundation has already raised $2 million and is hoping to raise nearly $303,000,000 more if every American donates a dollar.
