Eric Smith’s Story


Military/Marine Veteran and Firefighter Eric Smith, was enjoying a ski trip when things took a turn for the absolute worst.  Eric struck a tree and injured his spine, which required specialized rehab but his family was unable to cover the out of pocket costs for an air ambulance transport on top of their other rapidly growing medical bills.  Eric’s family and friends reached out to Charity Air Ambulance and we quickly stepped up to make sure this Veteran, who has continuously served his country, received the care he deserved.  One week after reaching out to us, Eric was on his way to Shepherd Center, one of the most renowned specialized rehabilitation centers in the country.  We are so happy to be able to help our veterans and first responders as we can never thank them enough for their service!
