"We are so excited for the tournament this year,” said Stacey Spiegel, Executive Director of Healing Heroes Network. “Some of the local veterans we have assisted will be at the event.

After the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, and the subsequent war on terror, thousands of members of our armed forces have been injured in Iraq and Afghanistan. Often these men and women are unable to receive the treatments that would facilitate their return to a productive civilian life. While the Department of Veteran Affairs provides treatment to these troops, the scope of covered services is limited, sometimes unavailable, and often delayed.
Healing Heroes Network was founded in 2008 by Dr. Allan Spiegel and his wife Stacey in order to fill these gaps. Healing Heroes Network, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, was formed with a network of caring providers throughout the United States to facilitate the treatment process. Healing Heroes Network provides financial assistance for those desperately needed therapies and services.
