BackgroundAs a result of combat trauma and training accidents, a great number of service members suffer major life altering injuries, to include limb loss and severe disfigurement. Although our wounded soldiers, Sailors, and Marines receive cutting-edge, state-of-the-art care; the consequences of these injuries lead to emotional distress and an altered self-image.MissionTo help our traumatically wounded recover, both physically and emotionally, Project C.A.R.E. was born. Our mission is to provide emotional support along with surgical and non-surgical care in an effort to improve appearance and restore function. We believe that even the slightest improvement can dramatically increase self-esteem and quality of life.DescriptionUtilizing a team approach with multiple surgical, medical, and supportive services, each patient is individually evaluated and a treatment plan is formulated. Depending upon the circumstances, a combination of surgical and non-surgical treatments is planned, along with an emotional recovery plan to include support groups, mental health counseling, or both.Eligible PatientsAll Active Duty personnel who have suffered traumatic injuries are eligible for Project C.A.R.E.
