About This Campaign

My son, Terrance Jeffery O’Hearn (Terry to his Family and Friends), died Friday Feb 5th 2016. He succumbed to a quiet, insidious disease: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Terry suffered valiantly from the ravages of this physically transparent illness since separating from the Army in 2010. PTSD is a disease of the mind and one’s mental outlook which is hard to diagnose and treat but just as deadly as any cancer or heart disease.

Terry was under VA care and gotten worse as time passed. The VA uses a medical based program and it clearly left Terry and his family without any outside contacts or support systems.

Had we known of support services such as Stop Soldier Suicide which uses a peer based program, another soldier knowing what Terry was going through would have been assigned for two years to help Terry ease back into "family" life.

Any donation helps The Stop Soldier Suicide cause. They can provide case management service to Veterans at a price of $25 a month. For 2 years, the estimated cost of the program is only $600 for one Veteran. That is it. $600. Stop Soldier Suicide believe's they will discover the peer based model of programs necessary to help service members transition from the military culture (and everything that comes with it) in a healthy way.

In Lieu of Flowers Terry's Family is hoping to raise $2400 ($24 x 100 donations) so that Terry's donations will help 4 other isolated suicidal soldiers and families with their peer based programs.

Campaign to Support Stop Soldier Suicide

Help us end Veteran suicide.


Stop Soldier Suicide is the first national Veteran-founded and led non-profit relentlessly dedicated to the epidemic of - and cure for - suicide among Service Members. 

We understand the problems and issues of Military suicide are too complex for a single answer. Our skilled Case Managers find the right solution for each person. 

And it's not a single conversation. We follow up over a two year period help as long as is needed. 

Our evidenced-based approach makes us truly unique. 

And our mission is simple:

We offer empowerment to those who have served and are serving still.
