The Bob Woodruff Family Fund
This fund works with private industry and government to develop public awareness and excellence in research,
education, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, support and resources for the injured and their families as they reintegrate
to duty or civilian life. The Bob Woodruff Family Fund assists service members injured while serving in the United States
Armed Forces. Special emphasis is placed on the "hidden signature injuries" of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan –
traumatic brain injury (TBI) and combat stress injuries including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
