"We are waiting for you."
Transportation 4 Heroes is composed of Veterans for Veterans. The conception of Transportation 4 Heroes began with a simple idea. A typical time line for medical procedures such as endoscopy, colonoscopy, pain treatments, or other procedures utilizing moderate or conscious sedation can average about four weeks for Veterans with transportation. This time line dramatically increases for Veterans without transportation; about 18 months or longer. Some Veterans may easily be able to report to their routine medical appointments, but reporting for specialty appointments requiring moderate sedation is often a challenge. Regardless of how many times a physician strongly urges the importance or the seriousness of a needed procedure, there are often extenuating circumstances that prevent Veterans from receiving medical care. A physician may order several tests, including what could be a lifesaving procedure such as an endoscopic procedure or a colonoscopy. These two procedures alone are performed while the Veteran is in a twilight-type of sleep. Hospital policy may dictate that all procedures done using moderate sedation requires Veterans to report for these types of procedures with the individuals who will be responsible for driving the Veterans home.
The challenge of arranging transportation can become a serious problem. Especially for Veterans who do indeed need lifesaving treatments, but have transportation challenges due to living in rural areas without access to transportation. Other Veterans may not have family that reside instate or lack close social support system with others. Usually, in these situations, Veterans often forego medical care putting their lives in grave danger.
